Shreya Iyer, former senior director of talent acquisition at big data company Splunk, said, “Depending on my personal mindset in a specific situation, my thoughts, methods and judgments may be affected.

She also suggested a related question: "Is there a email list completely opposite way of coping?"
"When making important decisions, I will deliberately disagree with myself. This helps me to improve my personal thinking more comprehensively. In one-on-one communication with subordinates, I also ask subordinates to try this method and get used to challenging themselves. In addition, in team meetings, all members and I will take turns speaking out against each other, which allows them to try to identify similarity biases, adapt to challenge other people's opinions on the basis of mutual respect, and cultivate self-challenging Habits of Thought". Ayer said.
She also recommends that you consciously review these issues in your daily work. "Before participating in a meeting that requires me to make an important decision, I set aside five minutes before the meeting to remind myself to ask these questions." she says.
Iyer also suggests questioning the premise. “A lot of times, we assume that the premises are unquestionable or changeable. There are benefits to questioning the premises when I am challenged, which in turn allows me to further question my assumptions and give in. When I am conscious of When there is room to negate the premises, that opens up multiple avenues for me to come up with solutions or think creatively," she said.
