#the power of noticing—What The Best Leaders See: By Max H. Bazerman, Simon and Schuster India, 215 pages, Rs699 How could that have happened? Why didn’t I see it coming? If you’ve ever pondered these questions after a decision, or a series of choices, has gone awry, read on.
For more than a decade, Max H. Bazerman, co-director of the Center for Public Leadership at the US’ Harvard Kennedy School and the Jesse Isidor Straus professor of business administration at the Harvard Business School, has been researching why we fail to observe things that might seem obvious in hindsight.
In The Power Of Noticing: What The Best Leaders See, Prof. Bazerman explains how “motivated blindness” can incentivize people to look the other way for personal reasons, the fallout when people fail to report something that doesn’t seem right, how we often make calls on the basis of incomplete data, and ways to become better “noticers” as well as decision makers. In an email interview, Prof. Bazerman talks about how executives can improve the quality of the decisions they make.
