Publisher's Summary

Cass Sunstein defines groupthink as "when you have a group of people who don't disclose what they actually know" and instead make a decision based on what they think is popular to the group as a whole. This conformity can be disastrous. Luckily, Sunstein is here to talk about his new book, Wiser: Getting Beyond Groupthink to Make Groups Smarter, and how to make informed decisions.

A nothing burger

This is a few minutes long and contains next to nothing. It is a short interview. Here is a summary of what they said. Group think exists. It occurs when people do not want to disclose things in a group because they are concerned about conflict or pushback. It is good to work with people so that they don’t feel that is necessary. When you want to share something in a group that you’re concerned about pushback regarding, started with the phrase just so you know. That’s it. I just gave you the essence of the whole thing. Now you don’t have to waste your money
