ReVisionary Thinking™

The Science and Strategy of Adapting to Change

Can you reach your goals, even if things aren’t going the way you expect? Most people are good at setting goals and making plans, but not very good at revising those plans when things change. But that’s the real work of resilience. Resilience is letting go of the “old way of doing things” and rewriting a script for success that gives you the fastest and best path from where you are to where you want to go. Backed by Courtney’s data-driven research, ReVisionary Thinking offers concrete strategies for blazing a new path when the goalposts move on you.

  • Avoid the typical mistakes people make when confronted with change
  • Improve mental flexibility as individuals and teams
  • Understand why gut instinct fails you in unfamiliar situations—and how to counter it
  • Generate more (and more innovative!) ideas when solving problems
