How to share your point of view even if you are afraid of being wrong

In this week’s newsletter, we’ll cover principles on how to feel more confident sharing your point of view.

  1. The more controversial the idea, the higher the burden of proof.
  2. Update your assumptions about how you add value.
  3. Share where your hunch is coming from—because it’s coming from somewhere.
  4. Describe why the problem matters, so people understand why you’re speaking up.
  5. Don’t rely on your credentials. Your idea should make sense on its own.
  6. Use language that accurately reflects your level of certainty
