    • Workshop – Mental Models for Better Decision Making

      a workshop with Indi Young
      San Francisco, CA
      September 12, 2019

      In this full-day workshop, Indi will introduce how to look at problems through the lens of peoples’ purpose. You’ll learn how to decide where to gather deeper understanding, and how to listen for people’s inner thinking, reactions, and guiding principles. Indi will show you how to treat this qualitative data properly, avoiding bias, building patterns from the bottom up. Lastly, you’ll spend time working with some mental model diagrams and thinking-styles created by Indi, so you get a chance to taste the powerful impact of deep understanding in the problem space.
