We make thousands of decisions every day, often without realising. But some decisions have greater significance than others, requiring increased cognitive load to process and get right. In the workplace, decisions are often critical to successful business goals and outcomes, so the importance of getting them right cannot be understated.  

This workshop will see participants gain an understanding of how and why they make the decisions they do, exploring the science behind the psychology of decision making.

Participants will also reflect on the common traps they face when making decisions, how to mitigate against them and consider the impact of poor decision making and indecisiveness.

Further to this, participants will also learn a method for applying structure to their decision-making process in a way that considers and values the input of and impact on others, ensuring that future decisions are taken with a holistic approach, and empowering them to make better decisions, more efficiently.
