Each seminar looks at a "mind" element of leadership. The series as a whole will look into the mind to find the latest on neuroscientific research and the psychological traps we fall into, how to avoid them and how to use the mind to its best. The series is also designed to give you quick focused input with key tips, tools and strategies for you to be a better leader. More importantly you can be back in the office at 10:00 (in Zurich) having received a wealth of useful tricks for success.

Overviews of Seminars:
Psychological Decision Traps in Business
In 1998 Hammond, Keeney and Raiffa from Harvard identified a number of common decision-making traps. These are based on how the mind processes information...and are frighteningly common in everyday life & business. More importantly the higher the stress the more likely we are to fall into a psychological trap. This talk will highlight these and the awareness will already help you to start making better decisions.

Analytics vs. Gut-Feeling
Gut-feeling is just our mind’s ability to process a lot of information unconsciously. Our gut-feeling is our best friend…it is also an enemy: our perceptions and feelings are based on unconscious processing that may be founded on fallacies. So when should we be analysing and creating hard figures and when should we be making efficient and effective snap decisions? The talk will address the issue and open up your eyes to what is happening in the mind and to when and where analysis may be better than your gut or visa versa!
