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.
On January 8 as part of the ongoing HR Matters series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, Marcy Luter will present Decisive – How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work.
During this session, Luter will provide attendees with a helpful framework to use when making decisions. Attendees will learn a step-by-step method to widen their options, reality test their assumptions, attain some distance and prepare to be wrong. Participants will also brainstorm and discuss practical solutions to common decisions that need to be made on a daily and weekly basis.
