In this captivating podcast episode, the show’s guest, Michael, embarks on a thought-provoking exploration of decision-making dynamics within aesthetics. The discussion revolved around the delicate equilibrium between swift and informed decision-making. Leveraging insights from the science of the amygdala, the epicenter of emotional responses in our brains, they dissect the repercussions of these two distinct approaches.

The conversation delves into the intricate facets of decision-making, highlighting the need for collaboration and ensuring every voice is valued and heard.
