Insights are worth nothing unless they are used. As most of our decisions are made emotionally, psychology and self-awareness become crucial to tell compelling stories, build trust, and help businesses make better decisions. So If we want to work better in data, we must look inward and learn more about ourselves.
Today I speak with Gilbert Eijkelenboom about soft-skills and the role that they play in data teams. Gilbert has a background in Behavioural Economics he is the author of the book people skills for analytics thinkers and the creator of a training program to close the communication gap between data practitioners and data users. Today we talk about our mutual experiences in data and meditation, about the elephant and the rider, or "system 1 & system 2” - à la Daniel Kahneman, the equation of trust and many other topics.
I hope that as we find more effective ways to use data, we will also learn to create deeper and more meaningful connections between human beings.
