Just The Facts

Bob Sutton scores again with his blog on Evidence-Based Management

As leaders we sometimes need to rely on our instincts when making a decision.

But sometimes our instincts get in the way.

Even in the face of evidence we reject the facts and want to “trust our gut”.

Ask yourself, “is this instinct, or pride, (or even conceit)?”

Sometimes – even when we believe we are searching for evidence – we are searching only for a way to confirm our beliefs.
