One of the challenges we have to combat in an economy that is thundering along or in organizations that are doing well is the assumption that they are perfect and that they have all the answers for everything.
In too many cases, success can set you up for failure that you don’t need.
One of the ways to combat unnecessary or unwise assumptions is by poking holes in the assumptions.
By asking questions.
The kinds of questions that you want to ask are based on creating an environment where you take a contrary view of the current environment.
Why do you think this is happening?
Why is it that we have been doing this?
Why do we assume that this is still a valid theory?
