Miroslav Polách has been involved in corporate consulting for more than 8 years. At the beginning of his career he worked with the GrowJOB institute, which, among other things, published the bestseller The End of Procrastination. Subsequently, he worked for 5 years in one of the Big4 Consulting Companies (EY), whereby he tried consulting projects for some of the most successful companies operating not only in the Czech Republic. He currently works as a management consultant and primarily specializes in process and problem analysis and organizing training to develop critical thinking.
Miroslav’s interest is to link practical knowledge of projects with theoretical knowledge of human decision-making.
He graduated from the University of Economics in Prague (Faculty of Business Administration) and he currently teaches a compulsory course for students of the master’s program focused on managerial decision-making and helps with teaching a subject aimed at developing critical thinking.
Main competencies and experience:
Our problem is often not that we do not know something, but that we are convinced of things that are not true.
When making decisions and evaluating information, our brain makes several mistakes that can lead to unnecessary misunderstandings and conflicts. Critical thinking deals with identifying these errors and reducing the impact on our decision making.
In the workshop, we will introduce the greatest killers of understanding in the workplace (e.g. confirmatory bias and IKEA effect) along with techniques that allow them to be recognized and reduced in their impact on our decision making.
