Episode 92: How Can You Make Wise Decisions at Work?

They are not all wise decisions – but maybe they could be, or maybe more of them could be. To talk about how to make better decisions, Linda Nazareth is joined on this episode by Dr. Jim Loehr and Dr. Sheila Ohlsson Walker,  authors of the book Wise Decisions: A Science Based Approach to Making Better Choices.
