We live in a world of so-called ‘fake news’, misinformation and airbrushed lifestyles. In the workplace many entrepreneurs have side-hustles and live multi-hyphen lives meaning they are a Jack-of-all-trades, but in truth are a master of none.
This can put pressure on small to medium businesses to offer more to their clients than their skill sets, and capabilities allow in order to stay ahead of the competition.
Saying “I don’t know” in a response to a client’s question is seen as being a failure, meaning a general lack of skills or knowledge often gets glossed over.
However, admitting you don’t know something is not a sign of weakness but a strength; knowing when to say, “I don’t know” or “I can’t do that”.
