About the Event

Robust and compelling evidence from behavioral science has revealed a reality that is difficult for many people to accept: When it comes to making judgments and decisions, we are all innately biased, and even worse – most of us have little or no awareness of this fact. Our reflexive, default behaviors often get us into trouble, leading us to incomplete thinking, story-based arguments, misjudgments of people and trends, and to intuitive decisions that can be profoundly flawed. Yet, making sound judgments and decisions is one of the most important activities that we undertake in the workplace as well as in our personal lives.  By understanding the limitations of our “mindware” and learning to recognize common decision biases, we can avoid errors and missed opportunities.
