Abstract

We occasionally make complex decisions. Sometimes we later judge that we acted unwisely. Sometimes we judge that we acted with wisdom. Organizational leaders have similar experiences. When they decide unwisely, their organizations suffer, and so can society. Are there ways to learn how to act with greater wisdom? Neuroscientists tentatively say “yes.” Here we will explore what wisdom is, what relevant brain science offers, and what you—as a human performance technology practitioner—might do to help yourself and others gain wisdom.
