How to kill groupthink in your company
Posted on: Aug/14/2017
Ralph Nader once said: “The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.” The problem is, this is easier said than done. Effective leaders inspire teams to collaborate in decision-making. This means choosing the best courses of action and integrating the ideas from your various team members. But the process for group decision-making can be flawed. The problem is that leaders, when trying to promote leadership skills and individuality, can instead produce a mass of followers. And followers rarely innovate or take charge of a situation. We call this groupthink. As a leader, it is important to recognize how it happens and how to move your team away from groupthink.
