Sometimes experts come across as bad salespeople. Pushy, arrogrant, not interested in us, annoying, focused only on ‘winning’, and so on.
Sometimes experts are more like a guide. Journeying with us through the unknown, removing branches blocking your path, holding the rope as we climb the cliff, and so on.
And sometimes experts are like teachers. Helping us see the context we are working in, sharing useful frameworks and principles to make decisions, helping us see the next task or step to take, and so on.
What type of expert are you?
And what type of expert do you seek out to work with?
