open your mouth

I am coming to believe that the most successful posture in business is best described as “Confident Vulnerability.” In most organizations we are terrified of saying something stupid, something that doesn’t make sense or of looking like we don’t know where we are headed with an idea. But in order to get anywhere new you need to accept getting lost sometimes – you need to risk the stupid comment. How do you manage the tension? Screw the former and embrace the latter.
