We make hundreds of decisions, big and small, every day. But are we really making those decisions mindfully – and are they the best ones? Research has shown that most decision making is sub-conscious – we may think we’re in control, but we’re actually on autopilot! – and that our brain follows established patterns to conserve energy. This means that, many times, we’re making the same decision – with the same biases – over and over again, even in different situations.

Our biases convince us that our decisions are right, but it takes a lot more to ensure that they are actually the wisest decisions. In order to do this, it pays to think about how we think. While conventionally there are two schools of thought – the faster, experience-based, gut-feeling intuitve type and the slower, more logical deliberative type – it’s in the third mode, a considerative one where moral, ethical and long-term consequences are looked into, that truly wise decision-making comes to the fore.

This one-day workshop is designed to take your decision-making to a whole new level, where recognising and overcoming biases can help you make clearer, more mindful, and wiser decisions for more rewarding outcomes.

**This programme is part of the Accelerate Workshop Series.
