The goal of this session is to provide information and context from the scientific literature on how leaders can be more persuasive. Participants will learn how studies on decision making, persuasion, and leadership can be translated into real-world applications. Participants will leave the session with new mental models, as well as practical examples, of how to incorporate leadership practices that are supported by research.
