Each day we make thousands of decisions. Some of these decisions are inconsequential but others can have a huge impact on our personal life and our work life. Neuroscience tells us that the brain considers various sources of information before making a decision. But how does it do this? And why does the process sometimes go amiss, causing us to make decisions that can lead to risky, unethical and potentially dangerous outcomes? This training helps understand how we make decisions, so we can use this information to make the best decisions possible.
