Consulting Best Practices

Don’t Discount Expert Knowledge Just Because You Disagree with It

Numbers do not lie, but people might. As such, too many people right now over-emphasize their distrust of people and deemphasize trust of people’s data. This is leading to expert knowledge and experience being disregarded for bad reasons. A post at Consultants Mind relays this message and discusses its implications for consultants. It also categorizes the different ways that inaccurate or close-minded attitudes can lead to the “death of expertise.” Ultimately, the only way to avoid falling into this trap of indefensible distrust is to remain a critical thinker, in every possible way.
