team building and leadership expert Michael CardusSpeaking at a conference in La Crosse WI this week.

The speaker after me shared some great information on Statistical Decision Making, from the ASQ Statistics Division.

I couldn’t help but reflect upon work, thoughts and beliefs and wonder if what I thought I knew is wrong, how would I know? And what kind of evidence would be needed to convince me that I ought to change what is shared to better reflect that evidence.

This is something that constantly plagues me, wondering if what I am doing and sharing with teams and managers, with information that I believe to be right, how would I know if it was wrong.

Does this happen to you?

Listening to other speakers at the conference who claim to be right in their thoughts on teams and leadership. BUT my workshop much of what I said was opposite of what they are saying.

Can both of us be right?

Can both of us be wrong?

How do you know if you’re wrong?
    • I understand that with social science team building & leadership the idea of definitive proof can be argued.
    • Do you have an example of when you realized you were wrong, and changed your work, beliefs, thoughts, to better reflect new evidence?
    • What kind of evidence is sufficient to prove that you are right or wrong?
    • In what ways to you approach others who says things that you believe are ‘wrong’?
    • How do you create comfort in sharing what you know with others, while understanding that it might be wrong?
