Community Event - How to Make Better—and Unbiased—Decisions Every Time #1


$49.00

Tuesday, March 15, 12:00pm Pacific Time

 

We make decisions every day. Big, small, casual, momentous. Better decisions can make us more productive, more effective, and more successful. Better decisions also enhance our reputations as contributors, managers, and leaders. But when it comes to the decisions that really count, how can you feel more confident that you’re making a clear-eyed choice, free from baked-in biases and long-held assumptions? 

 

Join us for an interactive workshop on decision-making that will share:

 

  • A usable framework for working through decisions and systematizing choices;
  • Research that’s key to mastering decision-making, including how the process works and how it goes astray; and,
  • Concrete skills that can make you a more confident, decisive leader.

 

Please note that this session requires participants’ live participation to effectively demonstrate an active learning methodology. Due to the interactive nature of the event, the session will not be recorded.
