How to Make Better, Unbiased Decisions Every Time, Co-Hosted by Minerva University

February 13, 2024 - 4:00 PM Pacific Time

Tuesday, February 13th at 4:00 PM Pacific Time

 

We make decisions every daybig, small, casual, momentous. Better decisions can make us more productive, more effective, and more successful in our personal and professional lives. While we intend to make decisions based on a rational evaluation of information, biases often unknowingly influence the outcome instead. How do we identify these biases and feel more confident that we are making a clear-eyed choice, free from long-held assumptions? 

 

Minerva University logoJoin us for an interactive workshop co-hosted by Minerva University, and featuring:

  • Key insights to navigate decision-making, including the effect of biases
  • A usable framework to work through decisions and systematizing choices
  • Concrete takeaways to make you a more confident and decisive leader

 

Please note that we will require attendees’ live participation to effectively demonstrate the active learning methodology. Due to the interactive nature of the event, the session will not be recorded.
