[FLR] What Smart Leaders are Saying – The Power of I Don’t Know (& why you should say that too…)

Happy Friday,

 

I was having a serious conversation with one of our corporate clients.

 

We were discussing her thoughts about what may happen next in a particular division as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

 

She stated, “I don’t know…”

 

My internal sense was one of relief.

 

It was totally ok for her not to know.

 

She will know when she has more information & when she needs to know.

 

And so will you.
