Abstract: Decision Leadership offers guidance for those who want to make better decisions and also help those around them make better decisions. The book applies decades of research on what makes decision making successful at the level of the individual, the group, and the organization. Leaders are effective, in part, because they help other people make better decisions. The book encourages leaders to think of themselves as decision architects, designing systems for organizational “decision factories” for greatest collective benefit, enabling those around them to make wise, ethical choices consistent with their own interests and the organization’s highest values.
Bio: Don Moore is the Lorraine Tyson Mitchell Chair in Leadership and Communication at Berkeley Haas and serves as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. He received his PhD in Organization Behavior from Northwestern University. His research interests include overconfidence—including when people think they are better than they actually are, when people think they are better than others, and when they are too sure they know the truth. He is only occasionally overconfident.
