How to Make Better Decisions By Listening to Your Gut with Denise Shull

Denise Shull is a decision coach and performance architect for hedge fund managers, traders and professional athletes. She is the Author of Market Mind Games - book on the radical psychology of making decisions and risk. And she is the inspiration for the character "Wendy Rhodes" in the Showtime show, Billions

Denise's thesis is that there's a common mis-belief that you should "set your emotions aside when making a decision" and she will explain why this is an ineffective way to make good decisions. Based off of scientific research, we now know that it's impossible to make decisions without feelings. In Denise's book, I read about a study where people had brain injuries to that part of the brain that controlled emotions, and those people were incapable of making any decisions. Not what to wear, not what to eat. It was crazy. So how do we stop ignoring our emotions and instead learn to understand what they are telling us.

Denise will also share:

  • The most significant question you need to ask yourself before making any important decision
  • How to figure out if you are making a decision for sound reasons or because of the two big fears that most influence our decisions, and
  • The proper way to mourn a failure so that you can get over it and keep it from holding you back.
