Don't miss: Andy Hunt's Pragmatic Thinking

This June 21st will be held the second Pragmatic Thinking event, lead by Andy Hunt at Skills Matter in London. If you are interested on improving your skills and want to know how your brain works I recommend you this course. I attended to the first event last October and it was very thrilling, with a lot of interesting stuff and exercises. In this course you will learn a lot of techniques to help your brain to work better and acquire pragmatic thinking and learning skills. 

Here you can find the extended program and the different topics you'll go through during the event:

  • Take advantage of pole-bridging and integration thinking.
  • Compare different laterally-specialized functions, including synthesis vs. analysis and sequential processing vs. pattern-matching.
  • Discover the one simple habit that separates the geniuses from the "wanna-bees."
