Improve Individual and Organizational Decision Making

January 23, 2019

Improve Individual and Organizational Decision Making

As organizations continue to emphasize evidence-based decision making, there is one arena where many are decidedly not evidence-based and seem to be stuck in an old mental model. This arena is about human performance and decision making. For example, according to a recent study by McKinsey, most senior executives seem to think that sleep is unrelated to performance and decision making. This disconnect persists in spite of the fact that there is burgeoning evidence about the links between human physiology, human performance, and decision making.

 Participants in this webinar will learn about:

  • The complex relationship between human physiology and decision making
  • Physiological and behavioral outcomes that negatively impact performance and decision making
  • The economic implications of these negative impacts
  • Specific actions that a person can take to improve their own performance and decision making
  • Actions that leaders and organizations can take to improve performance and decision making
