The Science of Executive Decision-Making
in a Virtual World

About this session

Today’s businesses rely heavily on teams. Increasingly, executive teams are going online as remote, “virtual teams.” That trend has been amplified greatly by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Online teaming has its unique challenges, especially in the dynamics of decision-making. Some special quirks of human decision-making arise and must be managed to assure that decisions taken in remote meetings are “real decisions.”

In this presentation, you will learn about a unique framework for understanding behavioral styles of thinking and deciding and illustrations of how to use the framework in leading remote and online teams. As a preparation for this session, we invite you to complete the free scientific assessment made available to you and your team for a limited time due to the Coronavirus epidemic.
