We are all subjective―it's human nature. We overreact to situations we judge people too quickly and unfairly we take something personally when it was not really meant that way. As a result we lose relationships reputation money and peace of mind. And in our ever-more-complex world leaders must make decisions faster and with more conflicting information widespread insecurity makes people territorial and risk-averse and the consequences of every action are played out on a disproportionately large stage. Imagine how much more prepared Mitt Romney could have been for his landslide loss on election night if his advisors had acknowledged the facts staring them in the face. To succeed we must consciously seek to increase our objectivity―seeing and accepting things as they are without projecting our mental models fears background and personal experiences onto them. This way we not only avoid costly cognitive errors but open ourselves to engage new cultures new markets and new opportunities. In The Objective Leader Thornton draws on her original research as well as her years of experience as a manager and entrepreneur to offer proven strategies for identifying limiting and unproductive ways of thinking and creating powerful new mental models that ensure continued success.
