Testing a Leader's Thinking with Jennifer V. Miller

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Phil is joined by leadership researcher and writer Jennifer V. Miller to discuss how to test a leader’s thinking during change. 

During large change initiatives, leaders often feel pressure to set a destination and quickly marshal resources to get there. As circumstances change, they must make decisions that may change course, shift priorities, or adjust outcomes. 

Leaders can get excited by or invested in their ideas and potential solutions before thinking through the implications on timelines, resources, or costs. Without evaluation, their approach to solving one problem can unintentionally create new ones. 

The greater a leader’s commitment to their ideas, the more difficult it is to influence their thinking.

So, how do you test a leader’s thinking to ensure their decisions lead to the intended results?
