Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader

Herminia Ibarra

Overview

The traditional model for leadership teaches you that the first step in strategy and problem-solving is to think before you act. But what if they've got it all backwards?

Herminia Ibarra, an expert on professional leadership and development as well as a professor at international business school INSEAD, advocates using 'outsight' as opposed to insight. While insight focuses on internal knowledge, past experience, and thinking, outsight emphasizes external knowledge, new experiences, and above all, action.

In this book, Ibarra argues that outsight is far more valuable than insight in building the mindset of leadership, as external learning and experimentation help to improve the way you work, think, and lead.
