"Master science-based best practices of Fortune 500 firms"


You are getting the benefit of my two decades of experience as a trainer and consultant for Fortune 500 executives, managers, and supervisors when you take my courses.


As the CEO of the training and consulting firm Disaster Avoidance Experts, I trained these leaders on my areas of expertise – cutting-edge behavioral science-based techniques in decision making, cognitive bias risk management, future proofing, and related fields. My clients include Fortune 500 firms such as Aflac, Applied Materials, Entergy, Honda, IBM, Jones Lang LaSalle, Reckitt, Wells Fargo, and Xerox; large nonprofits such as the World Wildlife Fund and The Columbus Foundation; government agencies such as the US Defense Health Agency and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police; as well as numerous middle-market companies and quickly-growing startups. You can be confident that you are getting the training courses that they pay me a lot of money to develop.


Besides these two decades of real-world experience, my expertise also comes from a deep research background as a behavioral scientist. I spent over 15 years in academia, first getting a PhD and teaching at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and then teaching for 7 years as a professor at Ohio State University, where I published numerous peer-reviewed academic publications. So you can be confident that the information is thoroughly based on the latest science. My teaching combines Fortune 500 best practices with groundbreaking research findings on the contents of the course.


My expertise has been widely recognized in over 550 articles I published and 450 interviews I gave to prominent venues. They include Fortune, USA Today, Fast Company, CBS News, CNBC, Time, Business Insider, Government Executive, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, CNBC, and Inc. Magazine.


Publishers and readers also recognize the quality of my content. I published 7 books, including global bestsellers Never Go With Your Gut: How Pioneering Leaders Make the Best Decisions and Avoid Business Disasters (Career Press, 2019) and The Blindspots Between Us: How to Overcome Unconscious Cognitive Bias and Build Better Relationships (New Harbinger Press, 2020).


My expertise is globally renowned. My writing was translated into and published in Chinese, Korean, Russian, Polish, German, and other languages.


On a personal note, I live in Columbus, Ohio. In my free time, I enjoy tennis, gardening, and reading. I also make sure to spend abundant quality time with my wife to avoid my personal life turning into a disaster.
