Deeper Insights: Seeing What Others Don’t

9:00 am–9:50 am ET

# of CPE Credits



The increasingly complex environment in which we work requires different ways of thinking to uncover the hidden meaning within multiple, parallel interactions. Deep insight is the ability to discern the inner character of problems, see unlikely connections and recognize complex interactions. This means more than just new procedures, it means letting go of outdated models. Insight can be developed through the use of a unique cognitive skillset not traditionally taught in industry and very different from conventional logical frameworks. This session will teach methods of achieving insight that will improve learning, allow greater recognition of hidden patterns, transform your perspectives on skepticism and judgment, and dramatically improve clarity of complex information.


Attendees will learn * Thinking approaches that underlie deep insight allowing them to detect unusual patterns, deal with contradictory evidence, and to develop skills that boost their understanding of meaning behind complex connections


* Forensic approaches to finding hidden patterns in information * The psychology of professional skepticism * Developing exceptional situational awareness * Strengths and limitations of scientific data * Developing and using nonquantitative data * The cognitive science of emotional intelligence * Effective brainstorming techniques * Data screening approaches and methods * How to distill meaning from abstract, unstructured, and extreme data

Who Should Attend

Analysts, auditors, governance, and compliance professionals, and those working in the IT, HR, legal, and medical professions as well as executives, policymakers, and other decision-makers interested in gaining deeper insight and clarity of pattern recognition and the meaning behind those patterns
