(PGT – Online) Decision Making in Practice – Part 1 and Part 2
(Part 1) Tuesday 28th February 2017 @ 19:00-20:00 (UK Time)
(Part 2) Friday 3rd March 2017 @ 19:00-20:00 (UK Time)
This is a two-part workshop with sessions. Please only book a place if you are able to attend both sessions.
We all make decisions every day. However, that doesn’t mean we all find it easy. Indeed, the ability to make good decisions may make the difference between success and failure in many aspects of life. What influences our decision making? What is a good decision?
How can we arrive at the best possible decision? How do we think about risk? During these two online sessions we will address these questions, using a mixture of short interactive lectures interspersed with activities, including one that you will do offline between the sessions, that will allow you to discover what kind of decision-maker you are, and to put your decision making into practice.
After the workshop each participant will:
understand the factors—economic, psychological and social—that influence your own decision making and that of others
be able to define an important decision and an effective decision
be able to use these insights to make more effective personal decisions
be able to understand the decisions of others and how you may influence them
appreciate how individuals think and decide about risk.
This session will take place via blackboard collaborate (virtual classroom). Booking is required in order to receive the workshop link and further information about how to join the session.
