Don't Stop at the Edge of Your Knowledge

We are not rewarded for not knowing, write veteran consultants Steven D'Souza and Diana Renner in their fascinating book Not Knowing. We are not expected to not know. People look for certainty in their leaders. But beyond the expectations of others, there is our own comfort, the authors explain: not knowing is uncomfortable, and it's better to know. And when you don't know, the answer, for the sake of ourselves or for the sake of those who believe in us, is to fake it. We pretend to know.
