The Key to Making Reality-Based Decisions
Powerhouse organizations have one thing in common. They know how and when to challengeconventional wisdom so that they always stay one step ahead. Even more, they know that complacency is a recipe for disaster. That’s because they’re equipped to anticipate change, sense industry swings, and meet client demands, maybe even before the client recognizes a need. Each one of us has a perception of reality about how the world works—a mental model. Like an internal hard drive, they provide understanding, guide thinking, and direct decision making. Built from everyday experiences, outside influences, and rewards such as money and success, mental models can be both beneficial and detrimental to success. And just as technology shifts and advances, so does the need for individuals, teams, and organizations to update, flex, and reconstruct mental models to improve performance.
An excellent starting point is to create awareness. Mental Models: The Key to Making Reality-Based Decisions shows the people in your organization how to examine their mental models, separate fact from opinion, clarify assumptions, and reveal hidden beliefs. This learning experience illustrates the need to tune into one’s surroundings, look for opportunities, and approach work with an open mind.
