Sydney Finkelstein, bestselling author and the Steven Roth Professor of Management for the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, joins Sally Jackson, public relations consultant and founder of Jackson & Company, to discuss the ways our minds are lured into making misguided judgments, and why organizations' decision-making processes so often fail to correct those mistakes.
Most importantly, he identifies the way wise leaders sidestep these pitfalls, and how you can do the same.
