About

This Strategic Leadership program from Harvard University analyzes the symbiotic relationship between leadership and decision making. It combines theory and practice to inform the participants of the latest and best studies on how effective decisions are made, as well as how bad decisions can be avoided. Attention will be paid to recent research in neuroscience on the dual aspects of the decision-making process: intuitive vs. rational, and the respective values of both.

Similarly the qualities that make for an outstanding leader will be discussed, especially in terms of strategic decision making and implementation to maximize results for the organization.
