I am wrong about something. And, so are you. – Thoughts prompted by the book Think Again by Adam Grant

Think AgainThis week, I presented my synopsis of Think Again:  The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know by Adam Grant, for a large group in an organization in Oklahoma.  In re-reading my synopsis handout, and in re-thinking what I had to say, I had the folks write down these five things prompted by the book.  I think you might find them useful.

#1 — I am wrong about something. (And you are wrong about something; everyone is wrong about something)
#2 —  Staying wrong is dumb!
#3 —  I should try to move from wrong to right.
#4 — And what was right then, may not be right now.
#5 — Someone “from the troops” may be closer to right than you are.  (“The troops” – people throughout the organization, regardless of position in any hierarchy).

“Rethinking” is a skill to learn, and develop.  Because…things are changing all around us, and it is time to think again in many ways.


Here is my “main” blog post about this book: Think Again by Adam Grant – Here are my six lessons and takeaways.
