Fickle Or Fair?
As I glanced at the top of page 6 of my workbook I saw exactly what I had expected to see:
"Being a Knower and Being Right versus Being a Learner and Getting it Right."
But when I looked down further I saw something that I didn't expect.
"That's not right," I said to myself.
I scanned the other pages.
"There's something wrong here," I thought.
I went back to page 5 and started counting.
1, 2, 3....11.
"11. That's definitely not right. There's 16."
I jumped up to my book shelf and grabbed my book.
The page is bookmarked and easy to find.
I looked at the chart.
"So why are there only 11 here?" I asked myself.
I pushed the button on my Zoom screen to raise my hand.
I have had the privilege of reading and leading the book Dare to Lead by Brené Brown with several groups of leaders, where we dive into the ideas, connect them with ourselves and our teams, and create new ways of working individually and collectively.
Now I am taking part in the full Dare to Lead™ training.
What I have found is both surprising and exciting.
Brené has evolved her ideas.
In her book, Brené outlines 16 characteristics that differentiate armored leadership from daring leadership.
16 ways that we jostle back and forth between the two depending in circumstances and our emotional landscape at the time.
Yet, in her training, there are only 11.
It turns out that she updated and evolved her ideas by combining some and shifting others based on new information and additional research.
I love it.
What do you think of people who update and evolve their ideas?
Are they being fickle or fair?
