At times of rapid change and when supply chains and margins are being challenged, the ability to influence others towards preferred decisions is critical.

The changing landscape has meant there is more emphasis than ever on developing lasting relationships built on trust and mutual benefit, whilst also acknowledging the wider aspects of social value and environmental responsibility. Decisions for some may not always be easy, and their initial choice not in line with your own. Imagine then if you could present the choices to them in such a way that they shared your view and came round to your way of thinking merely by the way you presented the ideas to them, or gave a different choice or perspective?

Nudge (based on the work by Dr Richard Thaler) creates a methodology to enable the design of choices for others in such a way to influence the decisions they make and their reactions to them. Rather than telling, effective influencers “nudge” others in the right direction through how they present different choices. The techniques helps to bring about positive outcomes by minimising the resistance and confrontation associated with telling, by helping groups and individuals to willingly make the “right” choice.

This webinar will cover:

  • Understanding the concept of Nudge – how people think, make decisions & behave
  • Decisions and the link to heuristics (rules of thumb, and habits/instinct) – using this to your advantage.
  • Designing choices and creating options – how to change in the ways individuals or groups make decisions.
  • Practical methods and examples of “nudges” which have led to positive outcomes.
  • Q&A session
