As human beings we make dozens or even hundreds of decisions every day. For many leaders, making decisions may be one of the key deliverables of their jobs and today’s leaders are being asked to make more and more decisions every day. In this course we aim to better understand decision making so that we can ultimately become more effective at making decisions.
We will look at what can go wrong when making decisions, how to understand our own decision making approach and the factors that influence it. We will look at different styles of decision making and how cognitive biases play a significant role when making decisions. Based on this knowledge we will discuss how to reduce the impact of biases and discuss strategies for making decisions more effectively.
