3 Leadership Secrets to Avoiding Business Decision-Making Disasters

  • Harrisburg, PA
  • May 18

No leader wants a disaster in their organization, yet they happen all the time, from everyday problems such as unnecessary team conflict to major crises such as losing top clients. The large majority of these disasters are preventable and stem from one or a series of poor decisions, as studies show. This presentation draws on cutting-edge research in behavioral and cognitive science, combined with real-world business case studies, to help leaders identify their organization’s strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities as related to decision-making, to help them make the most profitable decisions and avoid disasters. The style of the workshop involves extensive peer-to-peer engagement informed by current challenges facing each audience member.

Participants will:

  • Identify a series of problematic mental patterns – what scholars call cognitive biases – that cause leaders and their teams to make regrettable decisions
  • Help leaders identify their organization’s strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities as related to decision-making strategies and practices
  • Use recent research in behavioral and cognitive sciences to deal with these cognitive biases through pragmatic strategies for effective decision-making
  • Learn how to implement these decision-making strategies throughout their organization
  • Gain immediately-applicable feedback from peers and the speaker on current decision-making challenges they face
