Neurology for Equity: Rewiring our Brains, Changing our Biases

Intercultural skills are non-negotiable in our increasingly global world, where humans are more mobile than we’ve ever been, and where technology gives us access to groups and cultures we’d otherwise never get the chance to interact with.   However, a significant barrier to our intercultural skills is one of the brain’s many coping mechanisms: unconscious biases.

Ask Paloma -- Productivity Tools For Too Many To-Do Lists

Welcome to our new series Ask Paloma, where Paloma answers a question submitted by a customer. It's like a transcript of a mini coaching session so we can all nerd out and learn together. This particular question was asked by 11:11 Supplies Store Manager, Mimi Solum, and covers some of the tools we'll cover at our upcoming workshop BRAIN-FRIENDLY PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS (held on June 23rd, 2018). Sign up here to attend this workshop.  THE QUESTIONMimi brought her most common frustration to the table: "I am a list addict. I have lists everywhere, in my planner, multiple notebooks, my phone, on scraps of paper in the...
