About the Author

Cheryl Strauss Einhorn founded Decisive, a decision sciences company that trains people and teams in complex problem solving and decision-making skills using the AREA Method. AREA is an evidence-based decision-making system that uniquely controls for and counters cognitive bias to expand knowledge while improving judgment. Cheryl developed AREA during her two decades as an award-winning investigative journalist writing for publications ranging from The New York Times to Foreign Policy Magazine, Barron’s and Harvard Business Review.

Her new book, Problem Solver: Maximizing Your Strengths To Make Better Decisions, was published in Spring 2023 and stems from her research helping people investigate their inner voice, cognitive biases and how to build self-awareness and perspective-taking skills to make better decisions alone and with others.
