Challenge Your Assumptions, Change Your World
“It can’t be done.” “This is not the way we do it around here.” “I don’t have enough money for that.” “Am I the only one who cares!” These are examples of daily assumptions that act as barriers to personal change and growth. During his talk, New York Times Notable author and TEDx speaker Andrew "Andy" Cohen will provide strategies and tools to enhance your ability to manage problems and find creative solutions. The lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. in The Learning Center.
