The Talent Illusion. Arrive at your destination through Behavioural Accountability

The Talent Illusion. Arrive at your destination through Behavioural Accountability
March 22, 2013 at 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
Bob Davies, Motivational Author, Speaker, Trainer, Coach(High Performance Training, Inc.)
Imagine this….I am a private pilot. When I fly in the clouds I have learned that I cannot trust my interpretation of what I think the airplane is doing. I cannot trust my flawed human senses. I must rely on an objective system of instruments. One is called the attitude indicator, a gyroscope, which in other words means rigidity in space. Observing that instrument reveals if I’m in a climb, descent or turn position. Even if I feel like I’m straight and level, if the instrument shows I’m in a climbing turn I must respond to the system, not my thinking!
The key here is that if I follow a system that has a high probability of a predictable result then I will arrive at my destination.
This is comparable to human nature. The audience is exposed to outstanding industry training. They get excellent training from their product sponsors and broker-dealer market makers. However there is something missing. What is missing is a behavioral accountability system that is just that, a system. Not motivational hype, but a sound behavioral dynamic that is relevant to their level in the business, based in science, not wishful thinking or old popular psychology trends.
This dynamic has to do with how the human mind is genetically coded to avoid. Human nature is designed to keep us avoiding uncomfortable activities or any activity that is perceived as a threat. We are avoidance machines. It is our instinct to perceive “imagined” negativity and threats and to avoid them.

The presenter went way too long and didn't leave room for questions. He didn't provide tips that were actionable in the audience's workplaces. In the end it was an interesting presentation on how the mind works followed by a sales offer for his coaching service. It was rather disappointing overall. Even the slides were poor quality. I had to go back and look at the description a few times to ask how does this fit with the title and description? It connected to it but sadly it wasn't very valuable. 2 / 5
