Why We Want Control and How It Hurts Growth
Jonathan Citrin, a top keynote speaker on human behavior and behavioral finance, author, and financial advisor again joins Enterprise Radio to discuss why we want control and how it hurts growth.
- It is good to have you back. I would like to start by briefly getting an update on what you have been up to the past months – where have you been spending your time and energy?
- You mentioned you have been very busy talking a lot about “control.” But, what do you mean by “control” and why are you so fixed on this topic?
- So, a desire for control is deeply seeded in all of us. Can you tell us how this impacts businesses and entrepreneurs?
- That is really something we do not hear about elsewhere. Can you give a few insights for businesses and entrepreneurs that will help them improve and overcome their need for control?
- This has applications to business and entrepreneurs, but can we even apply it beyond that level – say, for example, in our personal lives?
