Conan Doyle, through his character Sherlock Holmes has much to teach us about Discovery.  Using all of our senses is a powerful way to learn about a job seeker, but we are often much less tuned in to the numerous moments for learning. Discovery requires constant observing, being in the moment, mindfulness.  This webcast will focus on learning to become a first rate noticer enabling us to observe not just see.  Content will include:

  • The difference between seeing and observing
  • Learning to use all of our senses during Discovery
  • Connecting mindfulness to Discovery
  • Distinguishing between which information observed is critical to learning “Who the job seeker is” and which information is not relevant
