Grant Dusting from McCrindle (or as they like to call him Stat-Man) joined Kirste and Dan to discuss how to spot a trend. “We look at trends almost like currents. That hint us to where we are going.”

1. Look at different perspectives
Often we restricted our own line of sight. Instead we need to be lines drones and look at things from wider view. “You might see things in your prereferral vision that were actually there all long. But you were just looking in one direction.” Sometimes we may have a chat with someone that bring a different perspective. “That’s what our team brings to companies that want to understand the trends that impact their industries and working environment.”

2. Avoid the gamblers fallacy
The gamblers fallacy is when a person believes a certain event is more or less likely to occur base on the outcome of a previous event. “If I toss a coin and get tails. Then toss it again, what is the chance of it being tails again? It is still 50/50.“Avoid making decision based on emotions and instead use logic and research.
