For over 20 years, Kurt has worked with global companies to apply behavioral science principles to drive change in their organizations. He is founder and president of The Lantern Group, a communication and behavioral change agency. Kurt also is the co-founder, with Tim Houlihan, of the award-winning Behavioral Grooves podcast, where they interview leading academic and business executives from around the world and explore how they apply behavioral science to their work and lives.   

 in this episode Kurt talks about the various ways in which human beings think and process things. In a typical sense, we would think that reasoning should prevail, but often we can be quite unreasonable. Also, the forming and creation of habits is discussed as well. 

 Philip Sharp does not have an essay segment this week due to the length of the interview.
