Making decisions is never easy. However, our life and even our every single day is full of continuous decisions: from what is the best way to go to work, what to eat for lunch, up to much more important choices for our future. Would you like to know what happens in our mind when you have to make a decision? Then this is the course for you!

By participating in the course you will learn how the Decision Making process works, what are the factors that influence decision making, what is the role of emotions in this process, what are the traps that can be encountered, both individually and in a group, what are the attitudes that influence Decision Making and much more. Make your decision: we are waiting for you!
