Every Leader Needs a Challenger in Chief

Who in your organization serves as your Challenger in Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? A vast body of research now points to the import of contemplating diverse, dissenting views, making us smarter decision-makers.When group members are actively encouraged to openly express divergent opinions they not only share more information, they consider it more systematically and in a more balanced and less biased way.

GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC‘s insight:

Decisionmaking, leadership – “A vast body of research now points to the import of contemplating diverse, dissenting views, making us smarter decision-makers.When group members are actively encouraged to openly express divergent opinions they not only share more information, they consider it more systematically and in a more balanced and less biased way.”
