The Beginning Of Wisdom
Relationships with others are the new frontier.
Today I want to share with you a quote from Bill Nye the Science Guy: “Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t.”
This sentence relates to two management principles that I promote on Superception:
- One can’t be a good manager if they don’t empathize, if they don’t care enough about the human beings they supervise in order to understand what motivates them and support them in their successes and failures. The fact that they can be convinced that they can learn from anyone might help less naturally empathetic managers to care more about their employees.
- Good ideas are not necessarily produced by those who are at the top of the hierarchy of a company or team. They can come from everyone we will ever meet – starting with our team members – and it is up to managers to ensure that all their employees can express their ideas.
