Dealing with Complexity
Managing tough situations and making smart decisions
How can we make wise and effective decisions against a backdrop of uncertainty, not knowing, and an indeterminate future? What are the typical mistakes of the brain in dealing with complexity?
Complexity is a constant challenge in today's business world. The multitude of factors that influence each other can mean that we no longer see through the interrelationships of a situation and have to reckon with unpredictable side effects. As managers or project leaders, we are nevertheless required to make quick decisions and achieve good results. However, managing complexity often leads to stress reactions that impair our effectiveness.
This programme offers you the opportunity to recognize the limits of the human brain in dealing with complexity and to improve your leadership skills as well as your effectiveness through new behavioural patterns. In doing so, we draw on insights from neuroscience to provide you with effective tools.
