Get a bonus take-home tip: secret doesn’t equal important and confident doesn’t equal competent.
- If you judge that watching this video to get a bonus is a good thing to do, I want to prove you right by sharing two judgment traps that ensnare most people. But now, they won't trap you. The two traps, secrecy and confidence. Trap number one, a coworker tells you that they want to meet with you at 11 o'clock. You already have a meeting scheduled at 11 o'clock to go over marketing results from last week. But the coworker tells you they have something confidential to tell you, a secret. How do you weigh the importance of each meeting? Beware of allowing secrecy to mislead you by making you judge something secret as more important, even when it isn't. Trap number two, let's say you're in a meeting and your coworker answers a question in a way that you don't agree with. But they answer with total confidence. If you judge them and their response as more competent based on their confidence, that might be a judgment trap. Beware of confidence masquerading as competence. So your bonus take home tip, secret doesn't equal important, and confident doesn't equal competent. I can't wait to hear how your improved judgment and decision making gets you better outcomes. I hope you reach out to me on LinkedIn or at appliedcuriositylab.com and keep me posted.
