Through his study of magic and the psychology of illusions, he discovered how the subconscious mind invisibly affects human behaviour and decision making. ​ He explored the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and behavioural science to gain a deeper understanding of cognitive illusions: biases, heuristics (mental shortcuts), and other illogical and often irrational impulses that guide how we think, feel, and decide. What he discovered is that these insights have valuable applications in the domains of leadership, relationships, culture, communication, productivity, and creativity.
