Author Dr. Dolly Chugh discusses how striving for good keeps leaders and organizations from being better. Author of The Person You Mean to Be, How Good People Fight Bias, Dolly says being “good” suggests an obtained goal, while striving to be “good-ish” allows room for continuous learning and improvement. Nurturing a growth mindset to be “good-ish” also helps us avoid the “self-threat” often felt when our “good identity” is challenged, and ensures organizations become what we want them to be.
