About this event

Why It Matters: HarperCollins Publishers, in partnership with General Assembly, is presenting a series of author events nationwide focused on how to improve key business skills such as negotiation, creativity, leadership, communication and decision-making.

Featured Expert: Al Pittampalli is the author of Persuadable: How Great Leaders Change Their Minds to Change the World, which was chosen by The Wall Street Journal as a book-of-the month. As a business consultant, he’s helped organizations like NASA, Hertz, Boeing, IBM and more transform the way they think about leadership. His first book, Read This Before Our Next Meeting, was the most popular kindle book in the world during the week of its release and has been translated into five different languages. Al is a contributor to Harvard Business Review and Psychology Today. ​

Overview: The number of decisions individuals and teams must make these days is extraordinary. And in the midst of this decision overload, we’re faced with a seemingly impossible task: make better decisions and -- in order to capture opportunities faster than our competitors -- make them faster. Is it possible? Perhaps. And research from the fields of cognitive psychology and human judgment provide clues that will help us rise to the challenge.

In this talk, Al Pittampalli will discuss:

  • How to prioritize decisions so you’re focusing on the ones that matter
  • How to know when to slow down and consult your team, or speed up and decide yourself.
  • Critical steps for making the best decision possible.

Persuadable by Al Pittampalli will be available for purchase at the event, or you can purchase a copy at harpercollins.com where General Assembly event attendees will receive 30% off plus free shipping with code BOOKTALK17.
