Women Lead Webinar Series


Do Your Decisions and Plans get “Sidetracked”?

You may not realize it but simple, irrelevant factors can have profound consequences on your decisions and behavior, often diverting you from your original plans and desires. This webinar based on the book “Sidetracked: Why Do Our Decisions Get Derailed and How We Can Stick to the Plan” will help you identify and avoid these influences so the decisions you make do stick—and you finally reach your intended goals.

Psychologist and Harvard Business School Professor Francesca Gino has long studied the factors at play when judgment and decision making collide with the results of our choices in real life. In this webinar you will learn:

  • What factors are mostly likely to sway our decisions
  • How to spot a mismatch in what we want versus what we do
  • How to be aware and correct for the subtle influences that derail our decisions

This webinar will help you prepare and be ready to negotiate through those critical moments that often derail our plans and stop us from reaching our goals.

The webinar is presented by:
