Making Better Decisions

Track: Preconference | |
Jonathan Bowring - Riversight

Our businesses depend on our decisions. We have incredible capacity to make quick, intuitive choices — and snap judgments are valued in business culture. But following our intuition will sometimes lead us to the wrong result or to repeat past mistakes. We’re also influenced by previous patterns, biases and narratives. Complex and uncertain situations need slower, more involved thinking. We make better decisions if we compensate for our natural biases and mental shortcuts. In this session we’ll examine our thinking processes and how to improve the quality of our decisions in areas such as hiring, problem solving and scheduling projects.

Takeaways: Attendees will increase awareness of their natural biases and shortcuts when making decisions and learn strategies to compensate for those tendencies so that they make better decisions.
