Decision making is one of the most important skills for managers and leaders, and can make (or break) a career. Default behaviors can lead to intuitive business decisions that are flawed. However, we can “rewire” certain behaviors in order to make better business decisions. During this webinar, Dr. Lee Newman, Dean of Behavioral Science at IE Business School, will explain the impact of recent findings in behavioral sciences on advancing your career. He will share key strategies for helping you make sound business judgments for long term value creation.
In this Webinar you will learn:
1. The impact recent findings in behavior sciences have on improving your decision making and advancing your career.
