Frequently I find myself sitting in our conference room with people who know a lot more about an issue than I do. That doesn’t, however, make them the smartest people in the room. I like to think that I know what I don’t know. And because I know what I don’t know, what I do know is how to ask questions and to challenge the experts to get to relevant analysis and impactful decisions.
When you’re consulting with attorneys as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant, they will challenge you and your opinions. And that’s a good thing. I wouldn’t want to consult with an attorney-client who didn’t challenge me.
But better yet, you should challenge your own opinions and everything you think you know. Having the insight to know that you don’t know something could just make you the smartest person in a room full of attorneys.
I’m just sayin’
P.S. Comment and share how you know what you don’t know.
