Overview

Your ability to master decision making best practices in all scenarios (quick, major, and strategic) will determine whether you reach your business and career goals in our increasingly-disrupted future.

Yet traditional advice to "go with your gut" in decision making so often leads to disasters that devastate company bottom lines and bring down high-flying careers, as revealed by research in behavioral economics, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. So what are the best practices used by the leaders of Fortune 500 companies to make the right calls in all types of scenarios on even the toughest decisions to maximize company bottom lines and advance their own careers?

These leaders recognize that science has revealed how our typical approach to decision making suffers from systematic dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases. These mental blindspots often lead us into decision making disasters that drastically undermine our desired outcomes and goals. Fortunately, recent scholarship has shown effective yet counterintuitive strategies to enable you to defeat these cognitive biases and help optimize your bottom line and your career. In this course, you will learn about and address these dangerous judgment errors, while mastering techniques for all decision making scenarios (quick, major, complex, and strategic) drawing on cutting-edge behavioral science and real-world best practices from Fortune 500 company leaders to help you and your teams reach your professional goals.

After taking this course, you will:

  • Master all decision making best practices (quick, major, and strategic) used by Fortune 500 leaders to seize competitive advantage for their bottom line and career

  • Free yourself of constant ruminations, numerous grey zones, and mental blindspots that plague decision making and block business and career goal achievement

  • Develop a plan with specific next steps to adapt for yourself the best practices used by Fortune 500 leaders for quick, major, and strategic decision making

  • Discover the dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases that lead to decision making disasters for your business objectives

  • Maximize your desired outcomes by overcoming cognitive biases via science-based decision making techniques used by Fortune 500 leaders

  • Feel truly confident about whether you made the right call in your quick, major, and strategic decisions to reach your business and career goals

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, major, complex, and strategic 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. I spent 8 years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, first getting a PhD in the History of Behavioral Science and then serving as a lecturer there. Then, I spent 7 years as a professor at the Ohio State University, where I published dozens of peer-reviewed articles on this topic 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.

This combination of business and science led to my expertise gaining global recognition. I published over 550 articles and gave over 450 interviews for prominent venues, such as Fortune, USA Today, CNBC, Fast Company, CBS News, Business Insider, Inc. Magazine, and Time.

My expertise is also featured in my 7 best-selling books, including global best-sellers Never Go With Your Gut: How Pioneering Leaders Make the Best Decisions and Avoid Business Disasters (Career Press, 2019) **and The Blindspots Between Us: How to Overcome Unconscious Cognitive Bias and Build Better Relationships (New Harbinger, 2020). Further attesting to my global renown, my work was translated into Chinese, German, Russian, Korean, Polish, and other languages.

That's what you can expect in this course: methods used successfully by leaders at the biggest companies to seize competitive advantage for their bottom lines and careers, thoroughly informed by cutting-edge research, and featured in top media venues and best-selling books around the globe. The course features 8 sections with videos, articles, and assignments from the course materials textbook packet, delivered in the following order:

  1. Discover the structure of our minds and why typical decision making advice, such as "go with your gut," so often results in disastrous decisions, and how to use science-based methods and Fortune 500 best practices to get the best outcomes

  2. Take the "Assessment on Dangerous Judgment Errors in the Workplace," to help you learn about which decision making cognitive biases are most problematic for you and your team

  3. Master a technique to make quick and effective decisions on any choices where you just need a "good enough" answer

  4. Master a technique for how to make major decisions where you or your team wants the best answer possible, rather than settling for "good enough"

  5. Master a technique for making complex decisions with a number of different options that each have certain strengths and weaknesses

  6. Master a technique to avoid failures and maximize success when implementing major and/or complex decisions, managing large projects, and solving big problems

  7. Master a technique to future-proof your strategic decision making and strategic planning

  8. Tying these all together, the last module will help you develop the mental habits necessary to notice and address cognitive biases and recognize when and how you should deploy all the techniques you've learned earlier
