Have you ever felt like there was an expectation for you to know everything, so you acted like you did (when you didn't). Then later realized, you missed on a great opportunity to learn?
I've had teachers tell me to always be curious, but how do you do that??
1- Be willing to admit you don't know the answer.
2- Be willing to ask dumb questions. You will never know everything, so ask the question. Chances are someone else in the room has the same question.
3- Ask questions that start with Who, What, Why, When, How. Yes or No questions do not allow openness for conversation/opinions.
4- Listen without judgement. Take it all in. Decide later.
5- Be willing to be wrong. We learn from our mistakes. Take that risk, and learn!
6- Be fully present. Be engaged in the conversation. Put the phone away!
