I love to learn and have always throughout my adulthood taken a variety of classes to improve my skills and insights as a performer, a manager and a business person, and a human being.   The Institute for Brain Potential offers twice a year some very interesting classes.   Though the six hour workshops are geared towards health care professionals and credit requirements for maintaining licenses, I just take the classes to learn and expand my knowledge base.   The recent class, "Reasoning with Unreasonable People"  taught by the eminent Dr. Shannon, was meticulously presented, informative and detailed.   Though I wasn't expecting it... I actually experienced a "a ha" lightbulb going off, immediately after having the thought of wondering why the prof was telling a story.  He knew what he was doing. Exquisitely well.
