Inner Circle: Should Entrepreneurs Trust Their Gut? Leadership Myths Busted

January 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

You probably heard advice for entrepreneurs to go with their guts, stick to their guns, and be confident as leaders. Unfortunately, behavioral economics studies show that following these typical pieces of advice – and many similar ones – often leads to disastrous consequences, since our gut reactions and intuitions are adapted for the savanna environment, not decision-making in modern leadership contexts. Groundbreaking research on best leadership practices forms the basis for this presentation, which busts leadership myths and offers clear take-aways to facilitate your leadership success in making the best decisions for the success of your business.

 Learning Objectives

  •  Identify where and when typical leadership advice for entrepreneurs is helpful and where and when it is not
  • Understand why and when our gut reactions are a poor fit for entrepreneur leadership contexts, and when our gut reactions serve us well
  • Discover how problematic mental patterns (called cognitive biases) lead to entrepreneur leadership disasters
  • Learn the groundbreaking research on best entrepreneur leadership practices that busts leadership myths
  • Develop a plan to integrate these practices into your entrepreneur leadership toolkit and teach them to others in your organization
