How to Be the Smartest Person in the Room

My former manager was an amazing leader and mentor. She had some brilliant sayings that I took to heart, and she recently left me with a piece of advice that I’ll never forget.

Become the smartest person in the room by knowing you are not.

You don’t get smarter or better by thinking you’re the best. You get that way by looking for the good in others and being open to what others can teach you.

The moment you start thinking you’re better than everyone else in the room is the moment you start falling behind.

I think sometimes we could all use that reminder.
