If we go into a meeting with a strong point of view, we run the risk of
not listening to the perspective of others, and missing out on finding the
facts that will enrich our own views.
And if we go into a meeting with no point of view, and simply ask
questions, we run the risk of spending all the time going around in
circles without arriving anywhere.
To be successful we need to listen to others; choose a point of view;
Explain our perspective to others and ask for their opinions, so that we
can validate them; and successfully sell our ideas to those that are the
final decision makers.
We can’t rely on simple answers to complex problems; and we can’t rely on
complex answers to simple problems.
It’s all relative; Einstein himself said it.
