Words Matter #10: Choose learning over knowing
It's what we think people need.
We’re convinced that’s how we provide value.
We’re certain it’s what we get paid for.
This thinking can be short-sighted and is a heavy yoke to bear.
Rather than having all the right responses, what if we:
Ask what others think
Learn someone else’s perspective
Become curious about contrasting opinions
More asking. Less telling.
More learning. Less knowing.
More curiosity. Less certainty.
Give it a shot.
