Making Better Decisions
Presented by Dan Ryan, SHRM-SCP, Principal, Ryan Search & Consulting

Decision making is a key role that we all deal with.  Often, the decisions we make are influenced by our brains in ways that keep us from reaching the optimal outcome.

This session will help those in attendance understand how the brain functions in decision making and also will provide insight into how you can keep your brain from providing influences that keep you from making the best decisions based on data.

Much of this presentation will draw from the book "Thinking Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman and the presentation will delve into decision scenarios that are common traps for HR professionals to avoid.

 Attendees will:

  1. Learn how the brain approaches decision making.
  2. Gain understanding about how to avoid the "traps" in conventional decision making
  3. Apply basic brain science to help the attendee understand more about approaching decisions.

Schedule: Doors open at 7:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet breakfast begins at 7:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 8:00 am. 

Breakfast:

  • Members: $24*
  • Future Members: $32* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $12*

*On-line registration will close by end of business 2 days prior to the event. Our ability to accommodate walk-in registrations will be based on space availability.

This program has been awarded 1 hour of General HR recertification credit."MT|SHRM is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDC's) for the SHRM-CP and SHRM SCP.
