The Art of Decision-Making

with Dr. Justyna Kucharska


About This Class

Want to make a change in your workplace and grow together? Well, we want to help! This class is great for teams looking to understand the psychology of how to make better decisions.

We make decisions every day: from small, everyday choices to big, strategic decisions. But every decision, big or small, has an impact—so it is vital that our decision-making process is as sound as possible. Developing this process will allow you to make more consistent decisions and choose options that are more aligned with your goals.

We are not as rational as we like to think; our judgment is compromised by a number of psychological factors, and so is our ability to analyze and synthesize information. In this class, we will learn how to recognize the biases in our thinking—and how to mitigate their impact.

We will also explore how to become more decisive and efficient—after all, not making a decision is also a decision. Finally, this class offers strategies to improve the quality of your problem solving to enable you to make more conscious, accurate decisions.

Together we will:

  • Learn the importance of critical thinking in decision-making
  • Explore how to use available information while recognizing the limitations of the information at hand
  • Recognize and manage psychological mechanisms that influence your judgment
  • Improve your ability to navigate complex decisions

Dr. Justyna Kucharska is a psychologist, researcher, and academic lecturer. She is passionate about the science of well-being and personal effectiveness. In her classes,  Justyna shares evidence-based techniques that allow us to “hack” our thinking, emotions, and behavior, thus improving our lives’ quality.

Apart from working in academia, she has trained and coached business leaders and professionals to help them develop their soft skills.
Originally from Poland, Justyna has lived and worked in the United Kingdom, where she taught at the Queen Mary University of London and the University of Westminster.

Pretty great actually—thanks so much for asking! We hope you’re having a great day as well.

All class times are listed in US Eastern Standard Time. We are working to add more time slots that are time-zone friendly globally.

While we wish we could clone Simon, science just isn’t quite there yet. That is why we’ve trained our Optimist Instructors to teach our classes. However, our two on-demand courses are taught by Simon – check out Find Your WHY and The Art of Presenting!

When it’s time for class, you can log in here and click on your class under My Live Online Classes. You should receive reminder emails the day before class and again two hours before. Please check your spam folder if you don’t see those reminders in your inbox. We can’t wait to have you join us!

We are always looking to add more class options to accommodate our global audience. We hope to have some great options for you soon. In the meantime, Simon’s books have been translated into multiple languages and can be ordered online.

We totally understand that schedules can change at the last minute. An unedited recording is available for 48 hours after class ends for all classes except for our WHY series.

We’re glad you asked! Our 60- and 90-minute classes offer: more detail, more connection with your fellow attendees, more activities, and more interaction with our instructors. The 25-minute classes are more lecture-style. They feature more information-per-minute, but the shorter timeframe also means fewer opportunities for active participation.

We know you’re busy and, if you can’t easily spare 60 minutes, we don’t want to deprive you of an opportunity to grow!

Yes! Buy any three of our 25-minute classes in one purchase and you’ll get the third class for half-price. This means that if you purchase a bundle of three 25-minute classes, it will cost $100 instead of the full $120. The $20 discount will be applied to your cart automatically during checkout. If you buy three 25-minute classes in separate transactions, you’ll pay the full price for all classes. 

Yes, we have team options! We love that you are looking to take care of those around you. Your team can join a public class, and you’ll receive a team discount at checkout when you register 10+ team members.  

If you want a private class just for your team, on a date and time that works for you, then visit our private class page and our team will be excited to help you. 

 Our team is more than happy to assist you; just contact us here and we’ll get back to you ASAP.

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
