By Molly Scholes

If you’re located in San Diego, or within driving distance, we’d love to include you in our studio audience on Tuesday, April 3, 2012 at 8 a.m.  for the Leadership Development Channel Live Event with Dr. Sheena Iyengar on The Art of Choosing. A world-renowned expert on the subject of choice, Dr. Sheena Iyengar’s research on how and why we choose, and what we need to do to choose better, has surprising and profound implications for our personal and professional lives. Dr. Iyengar is the inaugural S.T. Lee Professor of Business at Columbia Business School and the Research Director at the Jerome A. Chazen Institute of International Business.

Dr. Iyengar’s insights are invaluable not only to businesses looking to improve strategy, leadership and customer relations, but to every individual trying to make positive and lasting changes to his or her life.  In her presentation Dr. Iyengar explores three main aspects of choice. Think of them as the 3 Cs: Choice Overload, Culture and Creativity.

You will learn:

  • What effective leaders need to know about choice and how to choose your way to success
  • The differences in how people perceive choice, and its effect on what people want and how they act
  • How to give people the kinds of choices that will motivate them
  • How choice is viewed in different cultural contexts

The event will be held at KPBS, 5200 Campanile Drive, San Diego, CA 92182.  Space is on a first come, first serve basis.  The Leadership Development Channel will also be available online for all Leadership Development Channel customers.
