Leadership Training Workshop on Decision-Making

Dr. Terry Wu brings the Neuroscience of Decision-Making to Leadership Training. He guides leaders to improve the quality of their decisions.

Intelligent decision-making is the foundation of good leadership. The Science of Human Decisions gives leaders proven tools to gain clarity and prevent costly mistakes. By understanding the brain’s decision-making mechanisms, leaders will develop an awareness of what influences their decisions and their followers’ decisions.

Growing evidence has shown that emotions and feelings are the driving force of human decisions. We seek safety by conforming to our groups’ beliefs. We bond easily with those who are similar to us. We react to what happens around us based on how we feel, not how we think. We trust that we apply reason and logic often, yet we rarely see how irrational we are.

Anxiety, stress, ambiguity, and many invisible factors influence leadership decisions and create blind spots.

With guidance from the science of decision-making, leaders don’t have to rely on the trial-and-error approach. They can intentionally improve the quality of their decisions and produce more successful and predictable results.

Workshop: Apply the Neuroscience of Leadership Decisions

For more than 2 decades, bias has been the buzzword in leadership development. Numerous training programs raise our awareness of our cognitive biases. However, knowing the existence of a bias doesn’t do much to eliminate or reduce it. The key to overcoming biases is to slow down our racing brains. When we shift from reactive, emotion-driven thinking to analytical, data-based thinking, we can improve the quality of our decision-making.

Ivy Lewis Dr. Terry Wu’s presentation on the Neuroscience of Leadership was exceptionally well received at our event. His rich, science-driven content was a breath of fresh air. He turned complex Neuroscience research into interesting stories that everyone can relate to. Dr. Wu explained how decisions by leaders and followers are impacted by many subtle influences that we rarely paid attention to. He debunked some common myths about leadership that are inconsistent with science. Our audience was most impressed by the distinction he made about empathy and compassion and found that very insightful to their work. We all had many takeaways that we could implement quickly. We received very positive feedback from our audience after the presentation. We look forward to inviting him back to speak at our events in the near future ~ Ivy Lewis, President, ZL Consulting
