This session will build on individual and board biases covered in the webinar ‘The Psychology of Good Governance’. It will alert those on boards and in positions of responsibility about the many hidden psychological traps that can undermine the quality of our thought processes, drawing on the work of leading psychologists and researchers, including Daniel Kahneman, Steven Pinker and Adam Grant.

The webinar will cover:

•       The trap of certainty bias—exploding the myth of confidence

•       Understanding the noise in our systems—recognising the noise that clouds our thinking

•       Our rational irrationality—the desire to be rational, even when we may not be

•        Straightening our thinking—appreciating the benefits of structured processes.

This thought provoking and entertaining session is suitable for all board members and decision makers, irrespective of their roles and experience. It will provide you with practical tools and techniques that directors and senior leaders can employ immediately to enhance their operational and decision-making processes.
