We recognize that growth requires moving away from the status quo. Yet, how do you know what to change? Melanie Parish suggests it’s OK to experiment and collect data to decide what to do next. Melanie is the author of The Experimental Leader: Be a New Kind of Boss to Cultivate an Organization of Innovators. She joins Kevin to discuss this mindset shift to be experimental in problem-solving. When we can test assumptions and analyze the results, we can decide how to handle challenges and opportunities within our organizations and teams. We should expect failures; it is the small failures that provide good data. The big failures may be a result of doing too much, too soon.
In this episode, Melanie discusses:
- A scientist’s approach to leadership.
- Best practices and experimentation.
- Failure and experimentation.
