Misbehaving - the making of behavioral economics

"Traditional economics assumes rational actors. Early in his research, Thaler realized these Spock-like automatons were nothing like real people. Whether buying a clock radio, selling basketball tickets, or applying for a mortgage, we all succumb to biases and make decisions that deviate from the standards of rationality assumed by economists.

No-drama leadership - how enlightened leaders transform culture in the workplace by Chism, Marlene.

No-drama leadership - how enlightened leaders transform culture in the workplace

"Choice. Power. Speed. Today's leaders continually face these forces. But with too many choices, too much power, and too much speed, leaders often make decisions in a heightened state of emotion (and drama).
