    Synopsis:

    We all know really smart people who have made monumentally bad decisions. Want to know why? Join us as we examine specific case studies of high-profile CEO success and failures. What are the four key insights that lead to errors in decision-making and how do you avoid them? What is the “science” behind decision science and how can you learn to identify neural “traps” before they lead to bad decisions in your organization. Learn to master an organizational framework that can be put in place to avoid devastating organizational decisions. And learn how can you apply these learnings to improve the decisions that you make every day in your personal and professional life.

    Interactive exercises and case studies include:

    -Harvard Business Review: Making Smarter Decisions

    -Neural Traps: How to avoid destructive decisions

    -Smarter Decisions self-assessment

    -The Power of the Devil’s Advocate

    -Smarter Decisions process matrix
