By Tom Colosimo, Graduate Business Career Services

A healthy group of more than 50 people attended the Master’s Connection event this morning from a wide range of industries and focuses. The presenter, Nick Tasler, an internationally acclaimed author and thought leader.  Tasler's approach to decision making has helped leaders across the globe think more strategically and act more decisively. His books have been translated into multiple foreign languages and are currently sold in more than 30 countries. Nick did a fabulous job of engaging those in attendance with a key focus on the ‘Know – Think – Do’ concept.

This concept relates to Checking your Pulse’.  What makes you who you are and your values.

This concept relates to Consulting the Anti-You’.  Why we choose the best process from our logical thinking of better processes or ways of doing things.

This concept focuses on being a Decider.  Making the decision and going for it.  So many times people fail to make a decision or goal or furthermore, don’t set a goal and decide on achieving it.

Nick’s presentation had a logical flow to the theme and had numerous breakout sessions to keep all in attendance engaged. Post meeting remarks noted were that people felt energized ready to put this concept to work in their daily lives and workplaces.
