Thought of the Week – Shaming

 

It’s seems that the new way of getting your point of view to be accepted as the only way of thinking is to shame those with opposing points of view. Long gone are the times that the best idea with solid facts won the day. We most remember that bias is insidious.

Right now, in this polarized world, it is more important than ever for leaders to not allow this thinking to take root in the business world. Shaming is no way to run a company or to conduct business. Different perspectives should be encouraged and celebrated. Group think is not the way to go and universal ideology without the facts is just has damning. Managing by shaming should be universally rejected.

Moving forward make it your purpose to embrace ideas, especially opposing ones, always allow others to voice their perspective and you will be one step closer to developing a winning culture.

Onwards!

Thought of the Week – Guard Against Confirmation Bias

At times we are so invested in our beliefs that when we hear a rumor or get an unconfirmed report that matches our thinking we want to take the new intelligence as fact. In these moments we must fight that urge and question our confirmation bias. Always get the facts. Challenge the source and make sure you remain open minded.

The times when I have miscalculated the error could easily have been avoided if I had not wanted the story to be true and therefore I allowed the story to be true.

No matter where you are in your career questioning your confirmation bias is paramount. My thought of the Week is practice this skill in your daily life.

Onwards!

Thought of the Week–If You Are Not Getting Better You Are Getting Worse

Thought of the Week – If you’re not getting better you are getting worse

Business is fierce and rapidly changing. It is not enough to sit back and enjoy the fruits of your previous work or even maintain your current pace or capabilities. You and your team must evolve and grow. While harsh it is absolutely reality that if you are not getting better you are getting worse.

You must strive daily to improve and be in constant pursuit of positive growth. This focus will separate you from the pack in the end. Improving does not happen naturally however. It must be worked for. It must be planned and never left for chance.

Develop an improvement plan and review for progress at least bi-weekly. Dream big and big things will happen if you commit and follow through. So, follow through you must. Think. Execute. Adapt. Then Repeat. Get specific and go win!

Onwards!
Dh
