How Does The Right Thing Happen... When The CEO Is Wrong About it?


How does the hashtag#right thing happen, when the hashtag#CEO is hashtag#wrong about it? 



A few examples:



🔺 Larry Page was highly hesitant about Chrome



🔺 Steve Jobs initially opposed the iPhone App Store



🔺 Hastings didn't want Netflix children's programming



All of these were insanely valuable to each business



And this list could be hundreds of lines long.


______________________



The right thing gets done


despite the hashtag#CEO being wrong


when they've built a culture based upon... 



🔸 VULNERABILITY


 It's truly okay to be wrong 



🔸 ARGUMENT


 Debate gets to much better answers



🔸 SCIENCE


 Evidence settles a debate stuck in loggerheads



Many CEOs instead...



• Struggle to admit they could be wrong


• Shut down debate, operating with a mandate


• Favor masterful-yet-unsubstantiated storytelling



And culture of an org


almost ALWAYS flows downward


from how the hashtag#CEO & hashtag#C-Suite operates day-to-day.
