Show Notes

This presentation is based on Max Bazerman’s book by the same name as the title of the talk (Harper Business, 2020): Every day, you make hundreds of decisions. They’re largely personal, but these choices have an ethical component as well; you value certain principles and ends over others. Better, Not Perfect provides a prescriptive roadmap on how to maximize the pleasure and minimize pain that you create.  Melding philosophy and psychology, participants will leave this session with an audit of how they can achieve their maximum sustainable level of goodness.
