A Skill Drill is an intense cognitive and emotional workout that guides participants to adopt a new technique or a new way of thinking that can dramatically improve performance.
Each Skill Drill is designed to last 45 minutes to an hour.
A pre-workshop survey ensures that the Skill Drills are relevant, contextual and realistic to the problems and challenges faced by participants in their daily jobs.
Traditional classroom workshops are one or two-day long. This means that busy executives need to spend many hours away from work. At the same time, research has shown that individuals find it difficult to stay focused for more than 30 to 45 minutes. Skills Café micro-workshops are short, focused on a single skill, and are driven through interactive games, case studies, and simulations. Skills Café micro-workshops consistently receive an average learner rating of +4.6/5.
Mastering new skills and behaviors is a long road. Participants continue practicing and refresh their learning post-workshop through the Skills Café mobile app. The app keeps learners engaged with a daily dose of exercises, tips, hacks and expert opinions.
Understood cognitive biases at a deeper level
The training was unique in many ways; ranging from case studies that accurately mimicked real life scenarios, stimulating conversations, and debates about the topic. I have been using all the learning ever since. I greatly enjoyed the training and strongly recommend it.
Understanding the biases
I learned that our brains are wired to make unconscious decisions. This is because the number of choices we face each day would be overwhelming if we had to consciously evaluate each one. This means there is a direct link between our unconscious thinking and our actions and behavior. And when it comes to making choices at work its important to know they are not based on bias.

Perception is driving your way of thinking and your decision making.
