Tune In: How to make smarter decisions in a noisy world Paperback (Harriman House, March 26 2024)


Nuala Walsh, Founder and CEO, MindEquity; Visiting Fellow, London School of Economics

In Conversation with: Rhia Catapano, Assistant Professor of Marketing, Rotman School of Management

Event Synopsis:

Despite conventional wisdom, the biggest risk confronting our generation isn’t economic, political or climate risk. It’s decision risk, and the failure to hear who and what really matters.
Your decisions impact others, yet in today’s noisy world of digital distraction, disinformation and data overload we’re more vulnerable than ever to hearing less and less. In the dash to decide, we sacrifice nuance for convenience, misinterpret people and misunderstand situations, accelerating a rush to misjudgement.
The result? A catalogue of human errors, unheard voices and tone-deaf leadership. Tuning out relevant voices degrades decisions, damages reputation and squanders opportunity, amplifying modern activism, rampant polarisation, scandals and scams.
Now that can change.
In Tune In, award-winning Nuala Walsh champions understanding behaviour as an insurance policy against mishearing, misinformation and misjudgement. This timely masterclass stands apart in its original treatment of 'deaf spots,' the hidden judgement killers that stop us from hearing what really matters. It not only explains your worst mistakes but equips you to prevent future error and the sting of regret.
Armed with a new science-led PERIMETERS framework and dozens of 'sonic' strategies that rely on human intelligence, not artificial intelligence, you’ll discover the 10 traps that bind our reasoning. Each is illustrated by a cast of Wall Street titans, sports legends, serial killers, presidents, astronauts, entrepreneurs, entertainers and exonerees.
By tuning in, you’ll hear what others don’t and secure advantage. You’ll stand out rather than miss out, becoming a more admired and influential Decision Ninja.
Good judgement is at a premium - and your decisions matter. It's time to Tune In.
