I am a huge fan of Dan Ariely and this real-life study is a powerful example of the power of discussion and collaboration. What scares me about this talk is diversity; in so many seats of power, we lack the diversity we need to reach good, ethical decisions. While we might deliberate as much as necessary, when there aren’t enough diverse voices in the room…deliberation can only do so much.
Do you struggle with “groupthink”? Do you agree with this advice on how we can improve our decision-making?
