In this episode, we discuss how to achieve both objectives better. We learn how to overcome some pitfalls in how we interpret data, so we can be confident about our ability to make data-driven decisions in a smart way. And discuss tips for communicating data in a compelling but honest way to influence people’s decisions and behaviors.
