50 Lessons After 50:


Have a bias to say yes

Especially in the drug discovery and development industry, it is almost always possible to posit multiple reasons why a proposed course of action will fail, but if the hypothesis is well founded, it is essential to have a bias to say yes to sensible hypotheses, good experiments and quality people. Some bureaucrats equate saying no to having power, but of course, a no leads nowhere and means no one has to accept risk. Saying yes simply to say yes is not what I am talking about. Rather, I mean to interrogate ideas thoroughly and even if you disagree, if the hypothesis is sound, find a way to say yes. It is shocking what a difference it makes for an organization to learn to look for reasons to encourage rather than discourage. And to learn to accept the risk of failure.
