What determines your productivity on a day-to-day basis? The effectiveness of your thinking. The more effective your thinking:

  • The easier it is to get your mind in gear to solve the problem at hand
  • The better you can keep your head when you or the people around you are emotionally overwrought
  • The more realistically you can set goals and turn them into actionable plans

In the Thinking Directions Starter Kit, you get three foundational resources:

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is this video or audio?
A: You can join by video with Zoom, or by audio only with the phone bridge. Information for both ways to attend will be sent to you. You will get a PDF of any visuals, so you can follow along even if you are phone-only.

Q: What do I need to join by video?
A: You need a computer with reliable internet access, a microphone, and a video camera. You will need to download the Zoom app and test it out. I recommend testing it out well in advance. Here is a room to join to test: https://zoom.us/test. Just click on that link and follow the instructions. Then call into the Zoom “meeting room” for the event 5 minutes early to make sure you don’t have any technical problems.

Q: What do I need to call in by phone?
A: You can call in with any phone. Landlines are best. Cell phones often have noisy connections. But the bridge can handle them all. Details for calling in will be emailed to you.

Note: to “raise your hand” to ask questions during class, you need to be able to press * 9 on a touch tone keypad.

Q: Can I call in for free over the web?
A: Yes. You call in by Zoom over the web.

Q: Can I download a recording of the class instead of listening live?
A: Yes. If you sign up in advance for the class and can’t make it for any reason, you will have a short window right after it in which you can download an audio-only recording. Everyone who signs up in advance will get download information after the class is held. But try to attend live, so you can ask questions and get the full benefit of the webinar.

Q: Are there written materials for the class?
A: Yes, there will be a handout sent to you.
