"That’s really interesting..." [Mary Meeker]
Updated: May 5, 2019
A great quote on diversification by Mary Meeker:
One of the things I have learned about effective decision making is that the best decisions are often made by diverse groups of people.
Saying or hearing these words is magic... ‘That’s really interesting, I had never thought of it that way before. Thank you.’
(This is part of her 2015 annual Internet Trends report. Worthwhile read - but the quote above wins IMO.)
Beyond cultivating an environment of sharing and spreading knowledge, these words spread and cultivate and environment of respect, plurism and accepting.
Don't see a downside. Go for it. Go with it.
