Connected Futures Podcast: Cathy Davidson on Decision Making

  1. 1. connectedfuturesmag.com Cathy Davidson on the Science of Decision Making Cathy Davidson, author of Now You See It: How Technology and Brain Science Will Transform Schools and Business for the 21st Century, in conversation with Kevin Delaney, Sr. Writer, Connected Futures Podcast
  2. 2. connectedfuturesmag.comconnectedfuturesmag.com Primitive fight-or-flight responses influence business decisions more than we realize. In high-stakes situations, the pressure to perform can silence the smartest ideas— even those that could literally save a company. ConnectedFuturesMag.com EXECUTIVE INSIGHTS
  3. 3. connectedfuturesmag.com Physical or emotional stress make any decision harder. When making an important decision, remember we are all human and vulnerable to a range of pressures. Make a mental inventory of large stressors in your life, and then consciously set them aside when thinking through important decisions. ConnectedFuturesMag.com EXECUTIVE INSIGHTS
  4. 4. connectedfuturesmag.com The primitive fight-or-flight instincts of our early ancestors still override rational judgement. Such responses are affected by our emotional and physical states. They need to be acknowledged and dealt with so they don't impact one's ability to make decisions. ConnectedFuturesMag.com EXECUTIVE INSIGHTS
  5. 5. connectedfuturesmag.comconnectedfuturesmag.comConnectedFuturesMag.com EXECUTIVE INSIGHTS Do you want to make a good decision? Or one ruled by the most extroverted person in the group? Find ways to know what each person in the room is thinking (even the introverts).
  6. 6. connectedfuturesmag.com Tip #1 for Good Group Decisions Take 90 seconds for everyone to jot down their initial ideas or reactions—before “group think” takes over—and then work to refine the best of the lot. This ensures all ideas are considered and counters the natural impulse to follow the most outgoing participant. connectedfuturesmag.comConnectedFuturesMag.com EXECUTIVE INSIGHTS
  7. 7. connectedfuturesmag.com Tip #2 for Good Group Decisions At the last moment, as participants are preparing to leave, ask them to jot down “one thing that is on your mind from today’s meeting.” This exit ticket (or “Columbo Trick”) can capture an important insight, identify loose ends, or suggest where to start the next meeting. connectedfuturesmag.comConnectedFuturesMag.com EXECUTIVE INSIGHTS
