Poker: Lessons in Decision Making with Annie Duke

Annie Duke brings her background in cognitive science and poker together to understand how we make decisions. In the workplace, success depends on how we make those choices through decision strategy. Everyone, from the newest employees to the principals, is part of the continuous cycle of deciding and learning. These same strategies determine the quality of choices in relationships, health, and lifestyle, investing and consumerism, and parenting. Drawing on the unique combination of training as a behavioral scientist and 20 years as a professional poker player, Annie Duke offers frank assessments of the challenges presented by decision strategy and practical ways of confronting those challenges.

 

Annie's new book, Thinking in Bets http://amzn.to/2E1FBGT, publishes February 6th but is available for pre-order. This is one of a handful of books that I read cover to cover this year.

Lessons from the Rescue of 77 Businesses

If there’s one shared trait among the companies Bob Bethel took over, it was their approach to accounting. Each one of them was using what Bob calls “taillight accounting” – looking backward to see how the business is doing financially. He does not blame them for using this method of accounting, as this approach is preferred by the majority of companies in this country. The problem is that taillight accounting encourages business failure.

 

His new book, Strengthen Your Business: Fail-Proof Strategies From The Man Who Has Rescued 77 Businesses, stems from witnessing other business owners’ struggles, and a desire to step in and turn things around. In it, you will see that Bethel takes a practical approach to business advisory rather than an inspirational one, focusing on the fundamentals of what makes a business profitable.

 

About: Bob Bethel is the orchestrator of seventy-seven business turnarounds over the past fifty years. His early successes and troubles in his career inspired Bob’s passion for taking over struggling businesses and making them profitable. Bob has turned around companies in every industry imaginable and has helped save over ten thousand jobs.
