How to Carve a Duck
This is a strange title for a workshop, but it is one of our most powerful offerings. It is based on the old joke asking, “How do you carve a duck?” You simply take a block of wood and carve away everything that doesn’t look like a duck.
So it is with our personal/professional skills. Sometimes when things aren’t working, we want to throw everything out and start over when, in reality, all we have to do is carve away a few little nuances and get back on track. To develop more patience, simply observe the times when you are impatient, then carve them away. What is left, then, is a calm and patient demeanor. The same holds true for developing more confidence, a more kind and approachable tone of voice or any other skill you would like to master.
Socrates reminds us that all learning is self-learning. “How to Carve a Duck” teaches participants how to coach themselves in their quest for self-mastery.
“How to Carve a Duck” is available in audio format, as a keynote or breakout session, and is an integral part of many of our seminars and training programs.
