Making better decisions: Pre-mortem analysis and other cognitive tools for better outcomes in life, love, and work

Rationality is bounded by previous experiences and numerous mental short-cuts wired on us by biology. To escape its limitations, we can purposely use a series of tools developed by cognitive scientists to help people make better decisions. Dr. Stammberger will be sharing some of the tools that have helped her clients achieve better outcomes and offer the participants on this webinar a set of steps to follow to implement the tools that lead better decision-making. She will share examples of faulty decision-making and how these tools help.
