Unleashing Your Leadership Brilliance: Developing Confidence and Courage Through Neuro-Axiology with Traci Duez

Prework: Yes

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this training, learners will be able to: 

  • Identify and differentiate the three hierarchical classes of value.
  • Apply axiological knowledge to improve decision-making and conflict resolution.
  • Prepare personal development action plans (for use after the training).


Albert Einstein once said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking we used when we created them.” Yet, how many people have ever taken a class on how to improve their THINKING? Success in every area of your life depends on the choices you make and the actions you take—and those choices depend on your capacity to make good judgments. In this training, we will first measure your VQ (value-judgment quotient) to identify your current capacities to make good and accurate judgments. Your VQ profile will identify your natural strengths (thinking that serves you best) and your current weaknesses (thinking that is most likely undermining you). Using these results, you will learn how to immediately shift your attention from the thoughts that serve you least to the ones that serve you best by applying the principles and practices from the emerging new science of neuro-axiology.
