Analogies are a powerful, memorable and often playful way of understanding and communicating complex ideas. In Choose not to Fail, Peter has captured some quite common yet challenging situations we encounter in our daily journey in 9 very memorable useful analogies.
During this talk, Peter will be exploring why analogies came to be a significant tool for him as a team member, manager and leader. How you can put this power and perspective to work for you in your position starting today. He’ll also explore a selection of analogies from the book, exploring them in some depth, with examples of how they come into play within groups, and how you could utilize each to make your choices and impact stronger and more immediate.
The analogies in Choose Not to Fail area presented in a very approachable conversation style, and have uses in a variety of situations. Each is a package unto themselves, setting up a situation and exploring a specific, very reusable analogy to drive a deep understanding of what’s likely really going on, and several different options you’d have to manage it better, always with an eye to achieving results for you and the group around you.
The goal for this talk and Choose Not to Fail is to help each of us understand better what’s happening in the group dynamics around us and the impacts they have on the choices we make. Using the insight and perspective from these analogies, you’ll be positioned to better make better choices and interact on those choices with those around you.
