FT BUSINESS SCHOOL
FT Business School - Chicago Booth
FT.com presents the ninth series of executive education video lectures, delivered by Nick Epley, a behavioural science professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business
Psychological research has led to intriguing insights into human behaviour. In three video lectures, Nick Epley, a professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business (formerly Chicago GSB), shows how it can also give managers an edge in the workplace.
In Making unbiased decisions, Prof Epley shows how we unconsciously distort or omit vital information when choosing what to do. Mind reading at work explains why it is so difficult to intuit what bosses, colleagues and underlings are thinking. Finally, in Motivating staff, he says money is overrated as a way of firing up employees.
