What is Intelligent Disobedience? It is knowing when and how to say “no” to rules or orders which, if executed, would have harmful outcomes.
No one believes they would obey a harmful order – but research, history, and the daily newspaper show how often this is not the case. Intelligent Disobedience is an executive’s best friend. It keeps organizations from doing things that cause them to lose support or get into costly legal trouble. But it doesn’t just happen – it needs to be developed and valued.
Listen in to an hour-long conversation with Ira Chaleff, author of Intelligent Disobedience. Ira explores when and how to disobey inappropriate orders, reduce unacceptable risk, and find better ways to achieve legitimate goals.
