Stop Trusting Your Gut with Dr. Gleb Tsipursky

For this week’s Inspirational Leadership Podcast I spoke with Dr. Gleb Tsipursky. Known as the Disaster Avoidance Expert, Gleb is on a mission to protect leaders from dangerous judgment errors known as cognitive biases by developing the most effective decision-making strategies. He has over two decades of consulting, coaching, and training experience as CEO of Disaster Avoidance Experts, and over 15 years of experience in academia as a cognitive neuroscientist and behavioral economist. Dr. Tsipursky writes for Inc. Magazine, Time, Scientific American, Fast Company, and Psychology Today. A best-selling author, his new book is Never Go With Your Gut: How Pioneering Leaders Make the Best Decisions and Avoid Business Disasters.

Here are some of the topics we discussed:

  • How our cognitive biases lead to decision making errors
  • Why our emotions impact 80 – 90% of our decisions
  • Helping leaders to notice when they’re ignoring negative information
  • How we greatly underestimate how important emotions are in motivating people
  • Why so many companies have a low tolerance for failure
  • The drawbacks of being an over-confident leader
  • Why it’s important to distance yourself from your emotions when making decisions
