Underestimating signals from others and relying on commonly accepted assumptions can cause serious problems, especially in the workplace. In Signals, COO and speaker Dan Riordan shows you how to shift your perceptions so you can optimize your workplace and your employees.

We all have entrenched Beliefs, Values, and Illusions (BVIs), which elicit a reflex reaction when signals from others come to us.

Using proven concepts that can apply to companies both large and small, Riordan will show you:
  • How our BVIs are established
  • The burden of proof to require for assumptions
  • How desire, delay, and defense drives bad decisions in corporations
  • The energy equation in the enterprise
  • Why so many people are battling for the control of the human mind and its actions

Signals will show you how to question your BVIs, allowing you to bring new authenticity to your facts and a new awareness to your workplace.
