When it comes to decision-making, practice does not make perfect.

With so much information to process, your brain is constantly creating shortcuts — “rules of thumb” or biases that help you make decisions more quickly. While these shortcuts are meant to help you simplify a complex world, they also pose problems. With these biases humming in the background, you run the risk of making poor decisions.

Join us online to gain awareness about common cognitive biases that impact decision-making. You’ll learn and practice three methods that can help you make sound decisions when it matters most.
