THE CHALLENGE OF CHOICE
An Engaging Workshop on Making Insightful and Critical BUSINESS Decisions
Presented by Author and Certified Life Coach, Richard Fast

November 4, 2017
Toronto

Read More...

Neurose Cross Border held its first annual Canadian business expansion event in Toronto on Saturday November 4, 2017. There are endless examples of highly intelligent individuals and multi-billion dollar corporations who frequently make disastrous choices because they're oblivious to their inherited cognitive shortcomings and consequently they will unwittingly rely on their experience and intuition to see them through. You will discover--through first-hand experience--how business decisions are really made, and why we can be most vulnerable to decisional error precisely when our confidence is at its highest. The choices you make will determine the quality of your life, and rising to the challenge of choice means making "good" decisions when it really matters!
