Course syllabus


Week 1: Meet The Five Key Behavioural Science Forces Working Against You

Dive deep into the details of our brain's communication patterns. Understand the blend of emotion and logic that shapes our work behaviour. You’ll learn the PULSE Framework and begin to understand the most impactful behavioural psychology forces shaping our interactions.


Week 2: Unlock Whole Brain® Thinking

You'll be introduced to Whole Brain® Thinking, a strategy that lets you use your full cognitive potential. This isn't about squeezing more out of your brain; it's about understanding and tapping into its diverse capabilities. Think of it as learning to play every instrument in your mental orchestra.


Week 3: Uncover the 90% You're Missing in Conversations

Step up your communication by asking the right questions and packaging your messages for maximum impact. Dive into the art of empathy and learn to spot the subtle cues and undertones in conversations. By becoming an attentive listener, you'll catch what's often missed, ensuring that you truly understand others and they understand you.


Week 4: Personalise Every Interaction To Yourself & Others

This week is about fine-tuning your communication to fit each unique situation and person. You'll get hands-on techniques to adjust how you interact, both face-to-face and online. It's not about changing who you are but adapting your approach to ensure clear, effective communication every time.
