This program focuses on the journey needed for leaders to become first-class “noticers”. The power of noticing is deeply rooted in the rapidly evolving field of behavioral decision research, now popularized through such acclaimed books as Nudge and Thinking, Fast and Slow; Predictably Irrational. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, the author argues that people jump to conclusions based on limited information, and introduces the acronym WYSIATI to describe decision making that is based on the faulty assumption that “what you see is all there is.” The power of noticing addresses this limitation in human thinking, identifies what information we do not see or notice, and describes how we can use this knowledge to seek the information that will be most useful for making great decisions. Leaders need to realize that “what you see is not all there is” (WYSINATI) and to identify when and how to obtain the missing information.

Malcolm P. Baker (PhDBE 2000), Robert G. Kirby Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

One of the basic principles of finance is that, in competitive and efficient markets, investors earn higher average returns only by taking greater risks. Asset classes follow this pattern: Stocks have returned more than bonds, and bonds have returned more than cash. But, within the stock market, the pattern is reversed. Low-risk stocks, whether measured by volatility or market beta, have outperformed high-risk stocks, on average, in 80 years of US stock market history and in 30 years of international data. Drawing on his research, Professor Baker will describe the behavioral and institutional explanations for this anomaly and discuss the potential implications.
