the participant feedback says it all

The best part is using the tools to apply to a real decision instead of talking about it in theory. This is a very well done presentation and extremely helpful for students or really anybody.

Using the simulator to help me choose the city I might relocate to for my full-time job was huge. It was nice to see that we can both be successful in business while simultaneously involving ethics and empathy.

Using experiences or decisions from our own lives. Instruct everyone to go through the program and see how it works! I think I’ve gained a good understanding and will be able to apply them to most of my upcoming decisions.

The highlight was going into the empathy of decision science. I feel good and more confident in where I’m at in my decision-making.

Kate - student

I feel very good about my ability to apply these concepts although it will definitely take practice and mindfulness to master the application of these concepts.

Madison - student

I really enjoyed the casework and personalized approach to discussing issues that apply to us. You provided us with very applicable examples that showed how we can use many of the technologies that we’re learning about. I feel much better about my decision-making in the future. It’s nice to have an analytical source to help make decisions and add more reasoning.
