This week on Let’s Fix Work, I am joined by Dr. Daniel Crosby. Dan is an author, psychologist, and Chief Behavioral Officer at Brinker Capital. His primary focus is in behavioral economics and understanding how we make decisions around money. Dan and I met almost a decade ago, at a time when the economy wasn't doing very well. Since then he has published two books on the topic of wealth, money, and psychology. In this episode, we talk about behavioral economics in the workplace and why it all matters.

If you are interested in the role behavioral economics plays in the market, the workplace, and how it affects our decisions, tune into this episode of Let’s Fix Work.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  1. Can we be doing better with our money?
  2. Willpower and why relationships and context matters
  3. Freewill, do we still have it?
  4. We answer the question, is the market consistently eroding what's in our best interests?
  5. Designing better employment experiences
  6. The role and responsibility of people in power

On decision making: “Putting yourself in the right situations is a very big deal because we have limited willpower.  Surrounding yourself with good people and being in good places is more than half the battle.” Dr. Daniel Crosby
