209. Insights in Leadership: Understanding Crony Beliefs

Join Dr. Addison Killeen on the latest episode of the Daily Dental Podcast as he delves into the concept of crony beliefs, where individuals prioritize beliefs for favorable impressions rather than accuracy. The episode explores the powerful influence of social acceptance on thinking and advocates for self-reflection in leadership. Dr. Killeen recommends third-person thinking or meditation to gain perspective on beliefs. The importance of leaders examining motives to align decisions with social expectations and ethical considerations is highlighted. The episode concludes with a valuable book recommendation, "Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box," for those interested in further exploration of the topic.
