Conformity, innovation, and progress

Chris Spagnuolo back in 2008 – Conformity, innovation, and progress:

"Some time later, Asch conducted his experiments again. This time, when every one of the confederates voted for the wrong answer, one stood up and said “That’s wrong!”. The test subject then easily identified the correct answer. Adding one supporting partner greatly diminished the power of the majority. Hope!

One voice of dissent enabled another to be heard. Is that all it takes on our teams, in our society to make a difference? One voice to say “That’s wrong”? I believe so."
