Tuning Up Your
With Sunny Marche
October 21 & 28, 2011
8:30 - 12:30 p.m. each day
Location: Tupper 14-B2 (14th Floor, Tupper Building)
There are two very simple rules when it comes to skills: 1) use ‘em or
lose ‘em; 2) keeping skills sharp requires conscious effort. That’s why
Tiger Woods, who is likely the best golfer in history, continues to
have a swing coach and a training program.
When we want to improve any skill, be it playing the trumpet or
downhill skiing, we usually turn to teachers and / or people who can
demonstrate the behaviors we want to master. But how do we
improve hidden skills such as thinking? What is the alternative to “watching” thinking?
One alternative is to take this 3-part course on structured thinking skills.
Dr. Sunny Marche, a professor in the Faculty of Management and a long-
standing management consultant, uses training material developed by the
world famous Dr. Edward de Bono, creator of the phrase “lateral thinking,”
and the Cognitive Research Trust. Dr. Marche has delivered this course at
substantial expense to his commercial clients but is offering it to Dalhousie
University participants without cost.
Over the course of this program you will learn a series of thinking skills, one
or more of which are applicable in almost every thinking situation. We
guarantee that this will be a fun and practical way of adding tools to your
toolkit. At the end of the program, you will have seven different thinking
processes in your repertoire. Not only will you improve your own thinking,
you will have new ways of assessing the thinking of others.
