Sources of Power: How People Make Decisions

In episode 63 I speak with Dr. Gary Klein, founder of the Naturalist Decision Making movement. Gary discusses how we really make decisions and why the traditional, rational decision-making process that is taught in school is ineffective. Real decision-making is done on a subconscious level and is called naturalistic decision making. In this week’s show we discuss why experts make rapid decisions and how patterns play a role in the decision-making process. Struggling to make decisions while cutting Fresh Tracks? How to make and trust your decisions when you are doing something new as well as being open to see what you can be achieving instead of what you are not is covered.

Dr. Klein also discusses the role mindsets play in making decisions and gives examples on how we can change our mindsets systematically. There are, in fact, two types of mindsets; fixed mindset and a growth mindset. Which one you favor most effects your ability to cut Fresh Tracks. Struggling to make a decision? Gary shares that presenting things in a nontraditional manner or seeing the world through a different lens may allow you to see your problems in a new light and make the decision-making process easier.
