The Power To Trust Intuition: It has been in us all along!

Presented by Jengiz Gocer and Hugh McAlister


Description: In the 1970’s the singing group America reminded us that “Oz never did give nothin’ to the Tin Man that he didn’t, didn’t already have.” This is, of course a reference to the movie, The Wizard of Oz. In this 1939 classic film, the good witch showed Dorothy that the power to achieve her dream, to return home to Kansas, was within her all along.

We are not very different from Dorothy for we have unimaginable power deep within ourselves. All we need to know is how to access it. Like OZ, a place so magically different from Dorothy’s Kansas home, the place where our power lies is in the equally magical land of our intuitions.

Join us for a workshop designed to open the door to intuition. Using the IBM tool, "The Learner Within™," as our guide, we’ll use our collective consciousness and experiences to come away with an enhanced understanding of how to tap into intuition, to build on rational cognitive processes and to access the power already within us! In a world changing so rapidly, trust in intuition can be the difference between success and failure. We have to be ready to move with great speed and agility, to go forward as hockey great Wayne Gretsky said, “…to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”

When innovation is the price of admission to the marketplace, intuition is priceless! Come explore this power with us.

Target Audience: High school graduates to senior executives.

Organizational Issues: In our increasingly changing world we cannot afford to solve problems using only the level of consciousness we have used to create it in the past.  Einstein opened our eyes to this idea decades ago.  Still, we have not adequately tapped intuition, the part of the mind that explores and creates unconstrained by the legacy past thinking. This workshop will help us see how the intuitive mind is the partner the rational mind needs in the 21st Century.

Objectives: In 3.5 hours we will understand how each of us can start a personal journey that will increase our brain processing capacity from as few as 2000 bytes per second (an estimate of what most people use today) to as many as 400 billion bytes per second (an estimate of our processing capacity).

Date: Monday, April 23rd

Length: 3.5 hours (8:30-12:00pm)

Location: Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne - 6633 Canoga Avenue, Canoga Park

Cost: None

Hugh McAllister

Biography: Hugh has a passion for the integration of learning systems, quality management systems and client (customer) satisfaction systems.  He works with organizations to address the aims of these organizational sub-systems and to bring data to the table for the synthesis of knowledge from the data each sub-system provides.

Hugh is a graduate of Siena College.  He went to Harvard, but that was just a drive through one spring day, so we told him it doesn’t count.  His greatest contribution to organizations is his ability to think outside the quadrilateral parallelogram.  His teenage daughter, Meghan, gave him that term and he is running with it.  Ask him if he knows what it means? Hugh is known for creativity and humor in his work and he brings these characteristics to the way he looks at and works within systems.
