What is The Assumpt?
The Assumpt! is a strategy to enhance creative thinking, decision making and performance. The Assumpt! helps you make smarter decisions, enhance performance and think more creatively. What makes The Assumpt! different is that it encourages you to invest in your assumptions rather than deny making them. It’s a proven formula for challenging your day-to-day assumptions in order to generate more ideas, opportunities and solutions that drive success and enhance your career.
The Assumpt! provides you a competitive advantage. As Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” In today’s competitive atmosphere you are tossed with more and more problems at work as the pace of change intensifies. Using the same bat as before to hit them no longer works. You need ways to think differently to manage these changes. The Assumpt helps you use different bats, adapt your stance and shift your thinking.
This Assumpt! helps you think differently. As Benjamin Franklin said, “When everyone is thinking the same way, no one is thinking.” People in the same industry read the same websites, talk the same language and follow the same trends. They end up thinking just like each other. Same is true within organizations. The Assumpt! gives you the ability to break free of the traditional way of responding or doing something and explore what you or your peers consider “impossible” or “improbable”.
“Andy Cohen’s program on “The Assumpt” provided our participants with insights into everyday challenges in business communications where our assumptions hold us back from reaching our full potential. He challenged us to look differently at our assumptions not as truths but as beliefs and how that shift can help inform better communications and business decisions.”
