David Brower Center
2150 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA


How do we tackle the thorny problem of how to overcome our natural biases and irrational thinking to make better decisions about our work, lives, families and organizations? When it comes to decision making, our brains are flawed instruments. But given that we are biologically hard-wired to act foolishly and behave irrationally at times, how can we do better?



In this session, the first in our new Innovative Leaders Speaker Series sponsored by the Center for Health Leadership and the California Pacific Public Health Training Center, Chip Heath, co-author of the upcoming book Decisive and the New York Times bestseller Switch, discussed specific, practical tools that can help us to think more clearly about our options and make wiser, bolder decisions at work and at home.
