Seek out opposing views before acting on your ideas

I was interested to read this observation from Steve Simpson in his Cultural Intelligence newsletter:

“You’ll be pleased to know that there is hard evidence to support the fact that we ought to seek out different views.

“In a study by McKinsey, it was discovered that in cases where decisions turned out badly, only 25% of teams had sought out evidence contradicting their initial plan. In cases where decisions turned out well, 43% of teams had sought out contradicting evidence. So seeking alternative views actually results in better decisions!”
