Welcome to FOMO Sapiens, the podcast about entrepreneurial thinkers who don’t just follow the crowd but instead take their own path to success in business and in life. In this episode, we’ll be talking with Carol Kauffman and David Nobles, co-authors of the new book “Leading When the Stakes Are High: The Art of Extraordinary Decision Making.”
As leaders, we all face high-stakes decisions that can make or break our careers, our companies, and even our lives. In their book, Kauffman and Nobles draw on their extensive experience working with Fortune 500 executives and military leaders to provide a practical guide to making better decisions in high-pressure situations.
In this podcast, we’ll discuss the key principles and strategies outlined in the book, such as how to identify and manage cognitive biases, how to create a decision-making framework, and how to build a culture of trust and transparency within your organization. We’ll also talk about the role of technology and data in decision-making, and how leaders can leverage these tools without being overwhelmed by them.
Whether you’re a CEO, a manager, or simply someone who wants to improve their decision-making skills, this episode is a must-listen.
