Managers have limited resources for confidentially “thinking out loud.” When managers ponder decisions with personnel in or outside the organization, they are speaking to parties with a vested interest and risk violation of confidentiality. The safest route for managers is to think through decisions with a knowledgeable and trustworthy third party.
Having an external confidante gives managers third-party perspective when thinking through difficult decisions. By using a third party, the manager can have greater confidence that all elements have been considered and that the decision is sound.
