The trap of being established, experienced and…entrenched


I’ve been thinking about executives and teams I’ve worked with over the years, and just how easy it is to get stuck, but find comfort in experience.

We’ve all heard the line “one year of experience, ten times.” It’s insulting, and facile, and dangerously close to the truth.

We must always be learning, always open to new ideas and the possibility of being wrong. Always.

Or else we haven’t had 10+ years of experience, we’ve had a much smaller number several times.
