Choose a Diverse Panel of Teachers|
Valuable lessons can come from anyone. The key is to interact with a wide range of people, particularly those who are not like you. Seek out a diverse group of people and you might:
- Broaden your perspective by talking with people who disagree with you. Learn more about why they hold their positions.
- Improve your character by observing people you admire. Study how they handle ethical dilemmas and difficult situations. Ask how they developed the qualities that you would like to nurture in yourself.
- Learn from mistakes without making them yourself. Instead of avoiding people who have faltered, ask what they have learned from the experience. Think about how they could recover. You will learn how to handle setbacks yourself, and you may be able to lead others to recover from their mistakes, too.
- Discover the hidden lessons. Sometimes the people with the most to teach may be the quietest or the lowest on the organizational chart. Seek out people whom others overlook and listen to their stories. There might be something to learn.
