EEC 334: How to Harness the Power of Cognitive Biases, with Lisa Tromba Excellent Executive Coaching: Growing Your Business and Enhancing Your Craft.

    • Management

For more than 25 years, Lisa Tromba has guided companies from mid-market enterprises to Fortune 100 powerhouses in searching for and selecting their executive leadership.
You talk about what you call “mind knots.” What exactly are they, and how do they impact leaders? What are some strategies leaders can use to identify their own prominent mind knots? You suggest leaders should ask themselves one key question every day: Who am I practicing becoming? Why is this question so important, and how can it help leaders transform their mind knots into tools that move them and their organizations forward? You call attention to the fact that while cognitive and emotional biases are important to understand when selecting leaders, it’s a leadership lens that is overlooked in most organizations. Can you explain more about the importance of this lens and why it matters? In your book, you refer to what you call a “Captain’s Compass.” Can you describe what a Captain’s Compass is and how it can help leaders overcome their cognitive biases?

For more than 25 years, Tromba has guided companies from mid-market enterprises to Fortune 100 powerhouses in searching for and selecting their executive leadership.
Today, she caters to lower- to mid-market companies in search of executive leadership. Her high-touch, high-impact, solution-oriented approach includes assessing the impact of psychological bias on leadership.
Tromba has spoken on leadership topics to corporate, trade, and academic audiences, including Executive MBA participants. Publications featuring her work include Chief Executive Magazine, the AMA Quarterly, and she is quoted in the book From Cinderella to CEO.
