If You Think You're the Smartest Person in the Room, Find a New Room with Dr. Sam Jennings II
April 5, 2023
If you follow the recommendations of the title of this episode, if you think you're the smartest person in the room, find a new room with Dr. Sam... then it will be guaranteed!
We put a lot of value on education. Dr. Sam reports being treated differently than plain ol' Sam. It is interesting that a lot of people with an additional pile of letters after their name tend to think that means they know a lot about a lot. People who earned degrees or are told they are smart just might act like they're smart.
What does that do to others? It can be off-putting. People who act smart tend to want to be right and will argue until they are, even on an molecular scale. Leaders who might have some earned wisdom and could really hold court and regale the audience with lessons and tales rarely do.
Because they are more curious. They ask more questions. What's their goal? To learn more.
If you've seen leaders who act the part of Mr. Smarty-Frickin-Pants, how have you felt about it? How have you felt when a leader has asked non-judgmental questions? The contrast could barely be more stark.
The No More Leadership BS team will take you on a journey from perceived smartdom through earned wiseness. Those may or may not be words, but we don't claim to be the smartest, but we're certainly engaging!
