“Being wrong, they understand, isn’t a sign of stupidity. It’s a sign of curiosity, openness to new information, and ultimately smarts.”
For a culture of fast action & growth, if it isn’t safe to be wrong, to learn more & to evolve then you can’t expect quick decisions (or worse you will have a team that
consistently stands up for a failure instead of learning or pivoting)
The discussion about finding out how smart someone is by asking a time they were wrong is also intriguing. It takes courage to admit you are wrong. It takes courage to tell the story.
Apparently it is also evidence of being smart!
