The Pain of Expertise
Have you ever been on a team that didn’t recognize your expertise in an area? A true expert in a field sees the world a little differently than those who have a casual knowledge. Experts know the ramifications of decisions in their particular area. Others may feel familiar, but they often don’t know what they don’t know. It can be mind numbingly painful to watch our teammates make decisions in our area of expertise that go against all sound wisdom because the naïve think they have it figured out. It’s like watching a car wreck in slow motion. Let’s all agree to defer to the experts on our team.
