Decision Mojo™

Helping Businesses Flourish by Making Better Decisions


7-8 OCTOBER 2018

9:00 AM – 4:00 PM


There is no activity more fundamental to personal and organizational success than decision-making. It is the one task shared by every leader and professional in an organization. It is also how they individually and collectively earn their keep.

Yet there is never a guarantee that leaders and professionals will always make good decisions, even in the gentlest circumstances. Being able to consistently make high-quality decisions in challenging circumstances is an even rarer skill.

Drawing on the most recent research in neuroscience, decision theory and behavioral economics, Decision Mojo™ is a powerful learning experience that helps participants recognize key cognitive traps that can cause sub-optimum decisions. Learn the very specific strategies for avoiding the traps and making more effective decisions.

An organizations continued success in uncertain times requires a cadre of leaders and professionals skilled in the art & science of making good decisions

| Learning anticipatory decision strategies for situations participants may encounter in the future
