In this revealing webinar, Professor Rees will challenge participants to question how rational and bias-free their decisions and actions really are. She will share key findings that researchers have discovered about the pitfalls that lead to misperceptions and poor decisions. And she will show how we can all recognize and take charge of our assumptions and behaviours to build more honest workplace relationships and make better decisions.


Laura Rees is an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behaviour at the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University. Her research focuses on emotions and related cognitive and interpersonal influences that often arise spontaneously and without much conscious thought, but profoundly shape decision-making, negotiations, performance, and well-being at work. Her research has been published in numerous journals and book chapters. Laura received her PhD from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and her bachelor’s degree in economics from Harvard University. Before her academic career, Laura was a consultant for The Boston Consulting Group.
