Training: The Psychology of Decision-Making
May 11 at 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm£32.50 – £70.00
Decision-making has been held up to scrutiny a lot recently, and in many instances, has been found lacking. We all like to think we are good decision-makers, but decision-making is actually an underrated skill. We all make challenging decisions every day, whether in groups, or alone; in our workplaces or at home.
With more and more demands placed on us through the pandemic and recent world events, this may leave less space for the time and energy we need to make good decisions. Getting decisions wrong can be a costly business – in time and money – so identifying interventions that can improve the decisions we make, both alone and in groups, is crucial.
This training is for you if you are interested in understanding the challenges to good decision-making. What is it in our psychology that drives us to make the decisions we make? This training will also offer a route map for how best to overcome these challenges and get the most from your decision-making processes.
After the training you will:
• Have a better understanding of group and individual decision-making and the factors that drive this
• Have a better understanding of interventions aimed at how overcoming these challenges.
