The power of not knowing

During my studies I was once automating a research environment. In a meeting the teacher asked, “You do refer to the red machine, don’t you?” My research partner and I doubted, but afraid to strike a goof nodded yes. One hour after the meeting the teacher stood in our office. He had walked over to the other side of the complex and had determined that the machine was if fact… blue. “If you do not know it, admit it.” He advised us stern.

This experience inspired me in writing the 7th blog on the EuroSTAR community pages. Want to know more and learn how this experience is related to Edward de Bono’s theory and the 6 hats from Belbin? Curious to what Patrick Lencioni has to do with this topic? View the video introduction and read the column.
