Craig Valentine likes to ask, “Are you looking for education, or validation?” Put another way, are you here to learn how to improve, or because you want someone to tell you you’re already doing it right?
If you looking to prove that you are misunderstood, on the right track with the wrong people, or just plain right when everyone else is wrong, then you’re wasting your time as well as mine.
But if you are willing to try a new approach, hear that you need to make some adjustments and work to keep getting better, then you are in the right place.
The weakest leaders and speakers I know are the ones who aren’t willing to admit they are wrong.
Stop looking for validation, and you’ll be free to do the work to keep getting better.
