- When we’re outside of our area of expertise, we have a leaner’s advantage that helps us think outside the box.
- When veterans look at tough situations, they look inside. Rookies look to the outside, which often makes them more flexible and creative.
- It’s more critical to be able to access what’s in other people’s heads than to keep everything in your own.
- In today’s fast-paced world, we’re constantly doing things that have no precedent. In this environment, it’s better to be a quick learner than to try to know everything.
- When we make mistakes but admit and then fix them, we end up with even happier customers and stakeholders.
- It’s good for you to say yes to things you don’t totally know how to do because it keeps you in a healthy rookie mindset.
