This course examines ways to make the best decisions in a variety of contexts and situations. Through an examination of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, students learn to implement policies and procedures based on the situations of those they lead. Students also learn to analyze problems and challenges based on their situational contexts. The importance of looking beyond a one-size-fits-all approach is discussed. Ways of gathering information for making better decisions and the concept of information overload are examined. Students will leave the course with the tools necessary to make wiser decisions in their personal and professional lives.
