When most people think of the boardroom or executive suite, they think of button-up people having rational conversations and making decisions. Abandon those thoughts! Senior leaders are people and while they usually have a lot of experience, they can fall prey to the same limitations as the rest of us. Learning about pitfalls helps us to avoid them no matter our role.
Why do we ignore faint signals in the marketplace? Why are people so over-confident? Why are people who have access to so much analysis not necessarily analytical? Why do we insist we are rational? All of these have the same source-we are human. Our decisions are influenced by forces that we can’t see but we can learn about them.
