Narratives about decision making are often inadvertently tailored primarily to men. Meanwhile, narratives about women in business overlook decision making or offer advice that is unhelpful and can even backfire. How Women Decide fills this gap. It takes on the very real psychological and cultural obstacles women face, asks how these affect decision making, and suggests practical changes for approaching important choices. Using the latest research and her interviews with women in many fields, Huston breaks down the myths and facts around intuition, self-perception, risk assessment, and more. In this guide she persuasively argues that, contrary to popular opinion, women shouldn't feign inflated confidence indiscriminately.
