Join Cheryl Strauss Einhorn as she shares insights and stories from her book 'Problem Solved' (Foreward by Tony Blair, former UK Prime Minister). Our lives (both personal and work) are the sum of our decisions. But increasingly we are learning that many of our decisions fall prey to well understood cognitive biases and mental mistakes. In the day-to-day of life, we can get away with small errors. But when we're faced with high-stakes decisions or crossroads - when we want to ensure that we make the important decisions with confidence and conviction to produce hoped-for outcomes - we need a system to control for, and counter, our mental biases. How do we do this? Come and find out how to apply this powerful system of making complex decisions for your business.
