  • Week 10 – Blog Post: Most Important Thing You’ve Learned

    In my opinion, the most important thing that I’ve learned in this course is not one week’s specific topic, but rather the “A” method as a whole. I really enjoyed the required readings each week because I was intrigued by the concept of the A method, how to apply it, and how it benefits organizations […]

  • Week 9 – Blog Post: Self-Reflection

    1. What am I good at? I am a natural leader, because I possess good public speaking and interpersonal skills.

  • Week 7 – Blog Post: IPIP Results & Reactions

  • Week 5 – Blog Post: Typical vs. Maximal Performance

    If my favorite company was publicly discriminating against a group that I supported or was a part of, it would absolutely change the way that I felt about them.
