Gleb Tsipursky - Making Better Decisions and Fewer Mistakes


Gleb Tsipursky is the CEO of a consulting, coaching and training firm called Disaster Avoidance Experts. His mission is protecting recruiters from the dangerous judgement errors known as cognitive bias or that “gut” feeling.

His newest bestselling book, which we discuss, is called Never Go With Your Gut: How Pioneering Leaders Make the Best Decisions and Avoid Business Disasters. Dr. Tsipursky will be releasing a new book in 2020 called The Blind Spots Between Us: How to Overcome Unconscious Cognitive Bias and Build Better Relationships. Dr. Tsipursky is a cognitive neuroscientist and behavioural economist and has served for seven years as a professor at the Ohio State University. His thought leadership has been featured in over five hundred articles and interviews across popular media.

Dr. Tsipursky completed his PhD in Behavioural Science from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, where he studied the intersection of psychology, behavioral economics, cognitive neuroscience and history in business.

We start by discussing the reason Gleb got into researching decision making and go on to talk about:

  • The science that doesn’t support gut decisions
  • The five questions to ask yourself to avoid bias
  • Using the Dunning-Kruger effect to your benefit
  • How to take loss aversion into consideration
