Being Strategic in the Real World

with Dr. Eva Wong

July 14 - 16

Zhuge Liang bust

About this workshop:

We live in a real world. In the real world, we interact with people who have thoughts, feelings, open friendliness, and hidden agendas. In the real world, we move around in environments - be it the natural world of plants, animals, and elements, or the social world of ethnic diversity, community life, work environments, and government policies. In the real world, time does not wait.

Zhuge Liang’s success in political leadership, military campaigns, and social reforms is founded on his uncanny ability to observe the natural world and understand people’s thoughts and feelings, and use this information strategically.

What is offered in this workshop:

This workshop is designed to introduce you to the strategies of:

- Observing the natural world skillfully and deducing its messages. - Moving through and observing the social world discretely to gather information. - Using your observations to design strategic plans of action.

- Using your observations to set “go or no-go” parameters in decision making.

- Learning how to take advantage of opportunities and execute your actions in a timely manner.

- Being street smart in both beneficial and aversive conditions.

What you will get out of this workshop

- Guidelines on how to apply the training acquired in this workshop to your work and personal life.

- Thought banners that will stimulate further investigative learning.

- Exercises and scenarios that will hone your skill in moving around your personal, work, and social world strategically.

- Part 1 of Eva Wong’s book Mastering the Art of Leadership and Strategy.

Observe the world to understand the world.
Nothing is inconsequential.
Scrutinize everything.
Make judgements after observation, not before.

Material fee: $35
