Dig Deeper to Get it Right - Interactive

Seven Dimensions
Updated May 10, 2020

In this interactive course, you will discover how to research like a sleuth, and get to the source, facts or solution. Former homicide task force leader Colin McLaren explains to Eve Ash how too many people are casual about details and need to learn to dig deep, be persistent, open-minded, responsible and challenge where necessary.

Colin refers to his case studies of investigating Princess Diana's death and JFK's assassination, stressing the importance of getting to the source and mastering all the facts. He balances a competitive instinct for digging deepest with the necessity for retaining an open mind when considering a problem. It is essential to be fearless in your presentation of information, challenging when it’s called for, seeking correct outcomes and remaining as accurate as possible. Get it right first time, follow procedures, maintain your principles and never give up.
