The old saying of "prove me wrong" was used a lot when we were growing up. The thought and motivation behind the statement is to get the other person to step up and prove your idea, ability, or skills.

As I grew in my own leadership I found that statement inherently flawed. When I wanted my people to step up, I lead with the statement, "Prove me right." One word makes a huge difference.

Highlights include

  • Start in a positive place
  • Encourage them along the way
  • Validate and celebrate
  • Why bother making the distinction?
