The Third Opinion
How Successful Leaders Use Outside Insight to Create Superior Results
About the Summary
In recent years, authority has given way to influence. In The Third Opinion, Dr. Saj-nicole A. Joni explores how this raising of the leadership bar has given way to an even greater challenge for leaders — determining to whom they can turn when experienced, trustworthy advice is required. Some leaders might turn to colleagues inside the organization for help; others might call upon a trusted adviser outside the company. There is, however, another opinion for which most people never ask: the third opinion — the unvarnished insight of a loyal and diverse inner circle of advisers, experts and mentors.
