Work with mental models


  1. Uncover underlying assumptions. Take the initiative to bring key assumptions about important business issues to the surface. Engage in open discussions and encourage others to question their own mental models. This step is vital for expanding the organization's range of actions beyond what is familiar and comfortable.
  2. Develop interpersonal skills. Prioritize the development of interpersonal skills that facilitate effective communication and collaboration within the organization. Provide training and resources that enable your members at all levels to skillfully work with mental models. This will empower them to engage in productive conversations, challenge existing beliefs, and foster a culture of continuous learning.
  3. Connect mental modeling to real business challenges. Ensure that the skills and concepts related to mental modeling have direct relevance to pressing business challenges. Embed mental modeling practices into everyday work processes and decision-making procedures. By doing so, you enable the practical application of mental models to tackle actual business issues.
