Yet traditional advice to “go with your gut” in quick decision making so often leads to disasters, as revealed by research in behavioral economics, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. So how do the leaders of Fortune 500 companies make the right calls on even the toughest decisions when they have to do so quickly?

 

They recognize that behavioral science has revealed that our typical approach to decision making suffers from systematic dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases. These mental blindspots often lead us into disasters. Fortunately, recent scholarship has revealed effective yet counterintuitive strategies to enable you to defeat these cognitive biases. In this course, you will learn about and address these dangerous judgment errors, while mastering techniques for quick decision making drawing on cutting-edge behavioral science and real-world best practices from Fortune 500 companies.

 

Perhaps the easiest and quickest technique takes less than 5 minutes. It involves asking 5 key questions about a given decision that will enable you to maximize the likelihood of making a “good enough” quick decision and implementing it well. After all, Fortune 500 leaders have to make numerous decisions quickly every day on matters where it’s sufficient to make a “good enough” decision and not worth the time and efforts to make the best possible choice.

 

After taking this course, you will:

· Master the best practices for quick decision making used by Fortune 500 companies to seize competitive advantage

· Feel truly confident about whether you made the right call in your quick decisions

· Free yourself of constant ruminations, numerous grey zones, and mental blindspots that plague typical quick decision making

· Discover the dangerous judgment errors – cognitive biases – that lead to quick decision making disasters and how Fortune 500 firms overcome them using science

Sounds too good to be true? These methods were successfully used by Aflac, Applied Materials, Entergy, Honda, IBM, Reckitt, Wells Fargo, and Xerox to dramatically improve the skills of their top executives, senior VPs, middle managers, and lower-level supervisors in quick decision making. Over the last two decades, I trained the leaders at these Fortune 500 companies, as well as at numerous middle-market companies and quickly-growing startups as the CEO of the boutique future-proofing consultancy Disaster Avoidance Experts. The secrets used by these companies will be revealed in this course.

 

Here’s a recent testimonial from John Elnitsky, the head of the nuclear division of Entergy, a company ranked #299 by Fortune, speaking about the impact of my training on the leaders of the nuclear industry:

· “We at Entergy hired Dr. Gleb as the opening keynote speaker to set the tone for the annual nuclear utility industry conference, hoping he would give a wake-up call about the threats and risks facing us and what steps we can take to prepare. Well, what he delivered exceeded our expectations. His keynote was the talk of the conference, widely described by attendees as giving the nuclear industry ‘the kick in the pants we needed to jump-start critically important initiatives to address the threats he outlined.’ Thank you Dr. Gleb!”

 

Here’s a recent testimonial from Harish Phadke, the Business Manager for the head of the North American Health division at Reckitt, a company ranked #326 by Fortune, about the impact of my training on the Reckitt North American Health Leadership Team:

· “Dr. Gleb Tsipursky provided a truly outstanding virtual training on unconscious bias and future-proofing via emotional and social intelligence for the Reckitt North American Health Leadership Team. Exceeding our expectations, Dr Gleb customized his groundbreaking, behavioral science-driven training content to integrate our initiatives, policies, and case studies at Reckitt, expertly targeting our evolving needs. We are delighted to have met Dr. Gleb, and look forward to future opportunities to keep working with him on a training series for the organization. I highly recommend him for anyone who wants to get a rapid grasp of highly relevant topics which influence human behavior in the prevailing challenging times.”

 

Besides such real-world, pragmatic expertise, I have a strong academic background as a behavioral scientist studying decision making and related fields.

Then, I spent 7 years as a professor at the Ohio State University, where I published dozens of peer-reviewed articles in high-quality academic journals such as Behavior and Social Issues and Journal of Social and Political Psychology. Thus, this course is thoroughly informed by cutting-edge research.
