Each one of us has a perception of reality about how the world works—a mental model that provides understanding, guides thinking, and directs decision making. Built from everyday experiences, outside influences, and rewards such as money and success, mental models can be both beneficial and detrimental to success.

This course will show you how to examine your mental models to separate fact from opinion, clarify assumptions, and reveal hidden beliefs. Using interactive exercises and activities, this learning experience illustrates the need to tune into one’s surroundings, look for opportunities, and approach work with an open mind.

Key topics

  • Benefits and drawbacks of mental models.
  • Origins of mental models.
  • Compare different mental models among various industries.
  • How to reveal hidden assumptions and rethink misconceptions.

  • Identify your own mental models.
  • Recognize assumptions in your mental models.
  • Reveal hidden assumptions.

Richard Head has more than 35 years of staff learning and development experience and has served in roles as director of training, executive coach, director of online learning, and director of instructional development. He led teams of course developers and trainers for a division of the American Management Association, and consulted with Association business development partners in Thailand, Mexico, Argentina, Canada, and the U.K.

Richard has spent the most recent 10 years working in training and executive coaching roles, primarily in multi-year engagements with agencies of the Federal government where he coached executives who were preparing to enter the Senior Executive Service. As an instructional designer he developed both new online training as well as conversion of instructor-led training to both online and blended classroom/online formats.

Richard holds a Master of Social Work degree, specializing in not-for-profit organization development and administration. He used that experience to help people in the for-profit world further develop their emotional and social intelligence, and to advance corporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) efforts, particularly in the social domain.

His areas of expertise are communications, presentation and briefing skills, leadership, coaching and mentoring, negotiation and conflict resolution, change and transition management, interviewing and candidate selection, and business writing and grammar.

A lifelong learner, some of Richard’s strongest interests are adult and continuing education, questioning and learning mindsets, developing leadership points of view, and career and life changes. Recognizing the enormous power of the spoken word, he is interested in storytelling and the impact that common beliefs and stories have on our perceptions of the world.
