The skills that underpin all other soft-skills.
A solid scientifically backed model approach to understanding your brain and its effect on the way you respond to your environment and relationships. The aim is to better understand how we as humans think and feel and the effect our emotions have on our brains to enable us to develop our control mechanisms to behave appropriately and understand the reasons behind what we and others do. We discuss practical models of the brain and the BICEP model of social state management to help with this understanding. The assumption is that we are complex beings who have had a long history of development to become who we are. And we are in a process of growth and development. We want to adapt to lead more fulfilling lives and to be more productive.
