The event held at the conference hall of Heliopark Residence hotel gathered full house, with few seats remaining.
“I would be rather pleased if our meeting didn’t degrade into a lecture and a one-sided monologue,” Maxim Potashev said at the start of the event.
He told the audience about the decision-making process as a function of one’s mind, and how it changes throughout the life.
The speaker also outlined the criteria a person uses to evaluate the accuracy of a certain decision.
Each person, he explained, can ask himself several simple questions: Is he satisfied of the decision he took? Is he ready to adhere to this decision in the future? Does he intend to make other people believe it to be true, and use in similar situations?
Maxim Potashev stressed particular attention to the factors that increase potential of making wrong decision, such as narrow-mindedness, path dependence, overconfidence and errors in evaluation.
Describing the general decision-making algorithm, the speaker noted that people sometimes find themselves reluctant to admit and solve a problem because it was they who created it in the first place.
Maxim Potashev demonstrated information he presented with examples that allowed to predict a person’s behavior in the set conditions, and helped analyze possible solutions.
The second part of the workshop was held as a Q&A session.
