Decisive: How to Make Better Decisions in Life and Work
July 13, 2015

As humans we are notoriously poor at making decisions. We seem to struggle with this in both our personal and professional lives and the real question is: How can we do better?

Research suggests that our decisions are disrupted by an array of irrationalities and biases: We are overconfident. We seek out information that supports us and downplay information that doesn’t. We get distracted by short-term emotions. Unfortunately, being aware of these shortcomings doesn’t fix the problem, so we have to learn how to do better. This session will offer you a better framework to use when making decisions.

On July 16, join Marcy Luter, Management Development Specialist at Meridian Technology Center, and learn the following decision making processes:

How to widen your options by using a step-by-step method
How to reality test your assumptions
—How to attain some distance and prepare to be wrong
Participants will also brainstorm and discuss practical solutions to common decisions people have to make on a daily and weekly basis.
