"You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you." 

Every day, whether we like it or not, we have to make choices for our future selves. Whether it's about where we'll live next year or how we'll spend our money, decisions usually involve many factors and only get bigger and more difficult over time. But the more often we make the right decisions, we also become more confident in relying on our gut feeling, inner judgment criteria and past experience to guide us in the right direction. 

In times of crisis, we lose that foundation we previously built up for ourselves: all of a sudden, everything we took for granted around us changes, becomes unstable or obsolete. We feel incapable of forecasting the consequences of our actions, our judgment is clouded by extreme emotions and none of our past experience is relevant anymore. At the same time, we face some of the toughest decisions of our lives. 

To find out what methods we can apply to guide us through making the right decisions in times of extreme change and instability, StartupGrind University Beijing and Behive are honoured to jointly host Ji Gu. As Dean of Zhen Academy,  serial entrepreneur, ex-Co-founder & COO of the multi-billion-dollar AI company "Laiye" and Stanford and Cornell alumnae, Ji is an inspiring and highly renowned public speaker for effective communication and crisis negotiations.

Join us on May 5th for the online event with Ji Gu to discuss some of the most important aspects in effective decision-making during times of crises:

  • Forms and ways in which crises interfere in our decision-making ability.
  • Methods to restructure our decision-making mechanism.
  • Clarifying our value system ranking and overcoming emotional pitfalls.

This 30-minute fireside chat will be added on with an interactive Q&A session at the end. Professionals and students all over the world will learn valuable lessons for life in how to make the most effective decisions even when the world turns upside down.
