Our minds take shortcuts to get through the day. The way to the office? Stopping at a stop sign? Usually they are helpful, learned series of tasks that we’ve shortened into one step. But what happens when we over rely on these shortcuts? In this webinar, we’ll use real-world examples to identify some cognitive biases that frequently lead us to make the same decisions again and again. We’ll discuss some methods to prevent our blind spots from holding us back. We’ll learn ways to think differently to adapt and thrive in changing times.

Join us for an interactive webinar discussion where you’ll learn: 

  • The top 6 cognitive biases that can impede adaptability: status quo, availability, framing, knowledge, negativity, and conformity
  • 5 important behaviors why we should be intentional about using them
  • Tools to overcome the biases that have the greatest ability to limit our ability to think differently
