This seminar is 100% practical and
relates directly to one's professional and personal life. It examines the five
major mental locks that need to be opened for more creative problem solving and

In this seminar you will also learn:
How to inspect old rules
How to discard old rules and adopt new ones
How to take appropriate risks
Your own sensitivity to risk-taking and why
How to become a better risk taker
Why failure isn't fatal or necessarily bad
How to be more creative
How to avoid the deadly "Judas Trap"
And if time permits, a special segment on:
The Imposter Syndrome
Why, if I am so sharp and even successful, do

(Why do I feel I am "faking" it?)
