Decisive: How to make better decisions in business & life

YOU WILL NEVER ELIMINATE THE DISTORTIONS INGRAINED IN THE WAY WE THINK.  BUT YOU CAN IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF YOUR DECISIONS BY LEARNING  WHAT TRIPS US UP. 

Have you ever lied awake at night, tossing and turning, bombarded by a series of thoughts that just won’t let your mind rest, despite examining every single angle and possible outcome of a pending decision?

Few of us are educated in the art of decision-making yet it is an essential business skill. Bad decisions can result in irreparable damage to a career, business, or reputation.

Decades of research in the fields of Neuroscience and Psychology have revealed that human judgement is flawed, and our thinking clouded by cognitive biases. Much of our behaviour is irrational, and our choices often corrupted by emotion. Worse yet, these cognitive flaws are the result of our hardwiring, so we fail to notice their influence.

There is good news. You CAN learn to become a better decision maker!

SEMINAR OBJECTIVES:

    • Why do bad decisions happen to good entrepreneurs and managers?

    • How to manage the 4 villains of bad decision-making (narrow options, overconfident assumptions, to close for comfort & committed to being right)

    • Preparing to do better: how to overcome our propensity for making bad decisions

    • You will also learn some fun facts about human nature such as why beautiful people have a workplace advantage? Why tall men get hired and promoted more often and make more money and what you can do about it!
