Authenticity Builds Trust
It’s okay to say, “I don’t know.”
I received a terrible piece of advice once from someone who told me never to say, “I don’t know.”
You either know something, you kind of know something, or you don’t know something.
I try not to speak about things I don’t know, or kind of know.
If I’m speaking about something, it’s because I have knowledge, experience, or competency about that subject.
Authenticity builds trust, and what better thing is there than to earn trust in a workplace?
If you don’t know something, don’t pretend you do. I see this all that time. It’s okay to not have an opinion on something or to flat out say, “I don’t know”, or “I’m not educated enough to speak intelligently about that,”, or “I have some knowledge, but I need to do a little more research before I speak about it.”
