We have the image of experts as people who are all-knowing about a particular subject.

If you want the correct answer, you go to them.

If you want to see how it should be done, you watch them in action.

After years of training and development, they’ve reached the apex of their craft.

But have they really?

Real experts know that they’re not.

They know that there is still more to learn.

They know that there are other steps to take.

They listen to different perspectives.

They know that they need to continue to be open to new strategies.

So if you think you know it all, you’re probably not an expert.
