ARE YOU VULNERABLE TO MAKING BAD DECISIONS?
It is the job of Executives to make decisions through the day. Many organizations have built good decision making processes, but bad decisions happen despite them. Researchers have found that many of these bad decisions can be traced back to cognitive biases in the mind of the decision maker. These act as psychological traps that distort thinking and sabotage decision making.
In a HBR article on decision making, John Hammond and co-authors say " For executives, whose success hinges on the many day-to-day decisions they make or approve, the psychological traps are especially dangerous. They can undermine everything from new-product development to acquisition and divestiture strategy to succession planning".
The fact is very few are aware of these cognitive biases or built compensatory measures to counteract the effects. Most of us are not taught about these biases in school, college or in MBA schools.
Learn about these Cognitive biases and other important concepts at the Critical thinking workshop. Date : 29th June 2019 - Saturday. Bangalore. Cost Rs. 2900/- . This is an open workshop and we invite you to nominate decision making managers and executives to the workshop.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to :
1. Make better decisions by : (a) compensating for cognitive biases (b) using sharper and accurate reasoning (c) avoiding fallacies
2. Become more logically persuasive in all modes of communication
3. Avoid being swayed by appeals to emotions and rhetorical devices
4. Differentiate between logical and moral reasoning and value judgments.
