Internal Audit Discussions: Never Go With Your Gut

Field: Auditing | Delivery Method: Self Study | CPE Hours: 1.0

If you'd like to avoid terrible advice, cognitive biases, and poor decisions this episode is for you. We've all made some these mistakes that have lead to poor decisions, but we have the opportunity using behavioral economics and neuroscience to become a truly wise decision maker.

I'm joined by Dr. Gleb Tsipursky known as the Disaster Avoidance Expert, who has over 20 years of experience dramatically empowering leaders and organizations to avoid business disasters by addressing potential threats, maximizing unexpected opportunities, and resolving persistent personnel problems. Dr. Tsipursky has a strong research and teaching background in behavioral economics and neuroscience with over 15 years in academia, including 7 years as a professor at the Ohio State University and before that a Fellow at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

We discuss how tribalism, fight or flight and over confidence lead executives, risk managers, and YES ... even internal auditors to make poor decisions and not consider personnel aspect when making decisions and auditing processes. We even discuss some practical ways you can avoid some of the 30 most dangerous cognitive errors.
