Here’s the episode:

One way to tilt the odds in your favor is to use evidence when making decisions and choices. But our typical use of evidence isn’t optimal. We can do better. In this episode, we talk with one of the world’s leading voices regarding evidence-based practice, Rob Briner. He is a professor of organizational psychology at Queen Mary, University of London and the co-founder and scientific director of the Center for Evidence-Based Management. He has received several awards for his work in this area including the British Psychological Society Division of Occupational Psychology Academic Contribution to Practice Award in 2014 and topped HR Magazine’s Most Influential Thinker list in 2016. In our conversation we discuss the following (and more):  

  • What is evidence-based practice and what is it not?

  • Why is it difficult and what are some of the barriers?

  • How to get started with evidence-based practice
