Great leaders are great decision-makers. Put yourself in the shoes of a CEO: Your company is at a crossroads. You are split on a decision that is critical to its future. Your employees are counting on you to make the “right” decision. With a business environment that is increasingly uncertain, how do you become a decisive, effective, and confident decision-maker?
Join CEIBS Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior Michelle Xue Zheng for an Exclusive MBA lecture as she discusses this topic. During this lecture, Professor Zheng will draw upon an experiential exercise about leadership decision-making. Participants can expect to gain an understanding of the shortcuts and pitfalls involved in decision-making, and what it is like to sit in the classroom of the MBA programme ranked #7 globally and #1 in Asia by the Financial Times.
