Avoiding Common Biases: What really drives our decisions?

Episode #192 // We frequently hear about cognitive biases, especially when it comes to discrimination on the basis of gender, race, and sexual orientation. But our inbuilt biases operate much more broadly than this, and they can have a disproportionate influence on the outcomes we experience if we don’t develop a keen awareness of them.


In this episode, I explore some of the biases that limit our self-awareness and affect our judgment, and even some that straight-up deceive us. 


As you become more familiar and aware of what these biases are, and how they affect your thinking, it’s possible to avoid their most destructive consequences. And if you manage to tame the biases that drive your decisions, your people will massively benefit from your efforts!
