To thrive in this Culture of Insatiability in which we all live, is hard. At WhiteSpace we help you do so by teaching you something called a Reductive Mindset. When teams commit to being reductive, they can develop habitual ways of thinking that repeatedly surrender, let go, renounce, and strip away the unnecessary. They discover time to step back and do the richest work at work.
Along the reductive journey, WhiteSpace learners will employ new models and habits around The Tools That Turn on You: think email, meetings, technology, and even teams. They will learn to reduce interruptions, manage demanding clients, fortify skills of saying No and even be more present at home.
And after all this work that is reductive, they will turn the corner to the expansive phase where they learn to use their new-found time for strategy, innovation and vital reflection.
