Howie Mandel Part 2: Decision Making and Change Management

Howie Mandel Part 2: Decision Making and Change Management

In the first video of Howie Mandel speaking @ the CMA National Convention, we heard Howie describe how he’s managed to re-brand and market himself by going with the flow and keeping himself open to new possibilities.

In part 2, Howie discusses making decisions and how to know you are making the right ones. According to Howie, he probably spends too much time on decisions and given enough time you can talk yourself out of anything. That special talent we all have to suppress our instincts and talk ourselves out of anything is something one should be acutely aware of in order to have a good perspective.Howie Mandel at the CMA National Convention

Let’s face it, it was a big decision for him, newly engaged and with a steady job, to move to LA and take his run at being a comedian. In that case, he didn’t over think it and went with the flow – a good thing for comedy fans around the world.

Humans have strong instincts which we too often suppress or even ignore. That first gut instinct is usually right and going with that gut instinct has served him well. He labels himself as a dichotomy because he goes with his gut on the big decisions, but over thinks the small ones. It’s the small decisions such as whether to touch a glass on a table that are hard to resolve for him.

Howie often pauses to wonder at his success and how his ability to go with the fluidity of the way the world changes and not fear that flow/change has brought him such success.

What Howie is really talking about here is change management – our ability to adjust to a world where change is happening more often and more quickly than at any time in the past. It’s not the just the speed of change, but the number of changes of so many different factors which affect our lives.

Takeaway: Don’t ask yourself why the change is happening, but how you can take advantage of it.
