Wikipedia: "The curse of knowledge is a cognitive bias that occurs when an individual, who is communicating with others, fails to disregard information that is only available to themselves, assuming they all share a background and understanding."
I found a better definition on the website TheDecisionLab.com: "When we know something, it can be hard to imagine what it would be like not knowing that piece of information. In turn, this makes it difficult to share our knowledge, because we struggle to understand the other party’s state of mind." Ref: https://thedecisionlab.com/reference-guide/management/curse-of-knowledge
Leaders need to be master communicators, and cannot become that if they are not aware of their own cognitive bias.
