Intelligent Disobedience: A Rulebook for Breaking the Rules and Improving Your Performance
There’s a right time and place for leaders to discard “the rules” and prioritize results over process compliance, innovation over rote, business-as-usual constraints. This vital intangible skill is called “intelligent disobedience,” and Bob McGannon teaches leaders how to develop it in themselves, to the benefit of the people, teams and organizations they lead.
Outstanding leaders have the courage and the business intellect to recognize exactly when to countermand a management decision or directive for the greater good of the organization. McGannon, author of the 2018 book Intelligent Disobedience: The Difference Between Good and Great Leaders, gives leaders a set of defined cues, skills and tactics to excel at intelligent disobedience, so they become even greater assets to their organizations, while remaining true to overarching business requirements and goals.
