The instincts have become more popular and widely understood in the last years, with many approaches being taught and used. In this session, participants will be exposed to the Awareness to Action view, developed by Mario Sikora, on the Instincts, and will experience practical ways in which they can use the model in their work with leaders and teams.

LEADERSHIP In leadership, we will explore how to identify the different instinctual biases (Preserving, Navigating and Transmitting) and how to leverage the strengths of each. Also, what the implications are in terms of leadership style and how to overcome the weaknesses.

TEAM DEVELOPMENT People of different instinctual biases will focus on different tasks and objectives and we are often surprised when people place their priorities somewhere other than where we do. Such value discrepancies often a significant source of miscommunication and conflict in the workplace. Understanding the influence of the instinctual biases can help us reduce them.

Participants will work in groups by Instinctual domain, finding out by themselves how these biases play out at work. Each group will present their findings in a way that is both informative and fun.
