Diverse Opinions for Effective Decisions | Wendy Smith

As a leader, you might find it overwhelming to have too many voices chiming in with their opinions on an important decision. You're in charge so you should be able to decide for yourself, right? Well, it turns out that there are good reasons to encourage your employees and stakeholders to actively and equitably participate in the brainstorming process.

In this episode, Michael Hyatt and Megan Hyatt Miller talk through the Nominal Group Technique for generating the ideas you need to push your organization forward. Also, Joel Miller speaks with Wendy Smith, co-author of the book Both/And Thinking: Embracing Creative Tensions to Solve Your Toughest Problems. She talks about how the paradox of “either/or” keeps leaders thinking small.
