Why Great Leaders Dont Take Yes for an Answer: Managing for Conflict and Consensus by Michael A. Roberto

Executives hear ?yes? far too often. Their status and power inhibits candid dialogue. They dont hear bad news until its too late. They get groupthink, not reality. They think theyve achieved consensus, then find their decisions undermined or derailed by colleagues who never really bought in. They become increasingly isolated; even high-risk or illegal actions can begin to go unquestioned. Inevitable? Absolutely not. In this book, Harvard Business School Professor Michael Roberto shows you how to promote honest, constructive dissent and scepticism... use it to improve your decisions... and then align your entire organization to fully support the decisions you make. Drawing on his extensive research on executive decision-making, Roberto shows how to test and probe the members of your management team... discover when ?yes? means ?yes? and when it doesnt... and build real, deep consensus that leads to action. Along the way, Roberto offers important new insights into managing teams, mitigating risk, promoting corporate ethics through effective governance, and much more. Your organization and your executive team have immense untapped wisdom: this book will help you tap that wisdom to the fullest.
