Mental Clarity & Decision Making (K02-09)
Verfügbarkeit - Veranstaltung hat bereits stattgefunden
How do we create the mental clarity to make big decisions when academia leaves us with so little time or energy and very few resources to cope? Often, we are left trying to make life changing decisions from a place of self-doubt, emotional reactiveness, and exhaustion.
In this workshop, we explore the factors that impact on how we think and make decisions. We work on how our cognitive biases, cognitive fatigue, short-term emotion, mindset and other thinking patterns play in how we evaluate situations and available options. We also explore the forces that keep us from making decisions: the worry, the overwhelm, the self-critical inner voices that make you think you do not belong, you can’t do it, and you shouldn’t apply yet. We discuss and study our assumptions about uncertainty and control. And we put in practice concrete strategies to improve our decision-making and compensate for some of the most common cognitive traps.
