When (And When Not) To Trust Your Gut:
Decision-Making and Problem Solving Skills for IT Pros

Dr. Aaron Barth

Event Description:

When IT professionals make decisions and solve problems based on their ‘gut feel’—as they often do in the course of their work—they are subversively relying on brain processes that lead to unconscious biases. These biases can lead to longer problem solving cycles and seriously flawed decisions.

Dr. Aaron Barth will discuss how IT pros can use the emergence gut feels as a prompt to insert evidence-based tactics that improve decision-making and problem solving skills.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify cognitive biases that undermine decision-making
  • Recognize emotions that hijack your thinking
  • Challenge assumptions that lead to group-think
  • Uncover root causes that lead to unnecessary problem solving cycles and costs

Dr. Aaron Barth is an innovator working at the convergence of science, smart design and technology to change behaviour and transform organizations. Dr. Barth is a workplace science thought-leader and gives progressive leaders and HR directors the confidence they need to tackle their hardest people’s problems using scientific methods.
