How to Make More Rational Decisions at Work: (Mis)perception, Blind Spots, and Better Decisions

In this revealing webinar, Professor Rees will challenge participants to question how rational and bias-free their decisions and actions really are. She will share key findings that researchers have discovered about the pitfalls that lead to misperceptions and poor decisions. And she will show how we can all recognize and take charge of our assumptions and behaviours to build more honest workplace relationships and make better decisions.
