My next Maven class launches Monday!

Join me for my next cohort on learning how to make better decisions

Hey there!

In less than ONE WEEK, my course MAKE BETTER DECISIONS will begin.

I am looking forward to being in a wonderful learning community with Cohort 3 for 3 weeks!

Many people who are interested in my course have read my books on decision making:

Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Facts

How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices

Quit: The Power of Knowing When to Walk Away

It is not necessary to have read any of my books to join this courseMAKE BETTER DECISIONS! (In fact, we will be using parts of the workbook How to Decide, which I will gift electronically to all participants.)

However, for those who have, one of the frequent questions I have received is– what more will I learn in this course if I have already read your books

I have taught decision making strategy to many audiences– some new to my work and some that have read all my books. While it is easy to read about these concepts, it is much more difficult to really master them. Not to mention that I have much more to share that didn’t make it into my books! 

In my course I help students master the material through experiential methods such as case studies, activities, break out rooms, discussions with peers, explainer videos, Q and A, live coaching and demonstrations. The more you wrestle with the concepts in making real decisions, the more you are able to truly learn the material. Everyone can engage synchronously and/or asynchronously!

Further, the advantage of being in a cohort-based course is that you will interact with these concepts in a community of like-minded people. Brilliant minds from all over the world came together as Cohort 1 to learn from each other and lift each other up. Having learned the foundations of excellent decision making in the course, they now continue to meet with each other months later to discuss ideas and support each other. 

Here are some testimonial of those who read the books and gained a ton from this course: 

“I have read all of Annie’s books and listened to a bunch of her podcasts and teach an internal decision making class at my company, so much of this material was a refresher, but a refresher in a good way – seeing some of the book materials in action in a group setting was helpful. Being able to ask questions of Annie directly was incredibly helpful. A good chunk of the course is dedicated to group decision making, which is most of the high stakes decisions that happen at work. The approach offered is a welcome alternative to the classic “get in a conference room/zoom call and hash it out” approach that I am now working to see if I can get adoption at my company.” – Chris Neumann, CEO at CRO Metrics

“Even having read Annie Duke’s books, this class was incredibly insightful and just made things ‘click’ that hadn’t before. Annie was gracious and open with questions/dialog in class and during office hours, which surfaced quite a few ‘Aha’ moments for me. I’ve taken a few courses with similar 2-week formats (a couple specifically on decision making as well) and this class was by far the most valuable and engaging – this class should be triple the price. Huge thanks to Annie for offering this course!” -Kyle Byrd, Product at Blueprint

“Annie’s course opened a new dimension to her books and ideas about decision making. I was able to apply the concepts to my life right away in practical and useful ways. Annie really knows her stuff.” -Justin Nothling, Founder of 8min

I hope you will join me to take your learning beyond my books!
