The Possibilities Toolbox™
12 Keys to an Unstoppable Team and “Impossible Results”
All my professional life I’ve struggled with what are broadly referred to as “human skills”. Emotional by nature and rebellious by choice, it’s sometimes been extremely challenging for me to follow the sage advice “Be hard on the issues, but soft on the people.” Now, in perhaps one of the greatest ironies of my life, I have become the lead facilitator for a series of workshops on “human skills” for Tokyo Medical and Dental University professors. I’ve distilled the essential human skills into a “mindset toolkit” that makes these sometimes-fluffy ideas succinct and accessible.
The 12 Tools. The 12 heuristics below have helped me transform Feelings, Actions, Communication and Thinking (F.A.C.T.) in myself, my colleagues, and the thousands of people who have survived what I am now calling my “workshocks” (workshop seemed too tame a word).
Perception is NOT Reality
Complex is NOT Complicated
The BOX is only in Our Minds
Replace Judgment with Curiosity
Collaboration Beats Competition
Different is NOT Deficient
“Impossible” is Merely Difficult
Most Failure is Avoidable
Creativity is Risky & Messy-Experiment!
Make Mistakes & Fail Forward
Change Feels Uncomfortable
You Can Lead from Any Chair

Tolstoy said “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” These 12 tools have the power to transform our teams by changing ourselves first. Don’t believe me! Do the experiment and see for yourself. I look forward to hearing about your transformational mindset adventures. – Kimberly
