Choice Architecture: The Science of Decision Making
Leaders try to influence others. Understanding how humans make decisions can be an important tool in not only convincing others to your vision, but also in creating organizational structures that support positive outcomes. This webinar will draw on recent research in the areas of behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience to explore how we make decisions and the often invisible drivers of our choices.
