Andy and Cat.

Jun 24, 2022

In this episode, Andy shares his experience where he had to learn to go back and validate his past assumption and acknowledge the value of fixing the facts gathered. He explains why we tend to avoid this especially in consulting and in business and showed its importance and the value it can add to your service and to the business.


So, give this episode a listen and practice it as you seek to always improve your skill and service.



“There's a cost to not validating our decisions, as well as the decision-making process.”

“The need to be right paralyzes our learning muscles.”

“Our value as consultants may be how we validate assumptions of facts and deliver that new information to our clients.”

“I’d rather be correct in my assumption, and correct my assumption than to hold on to an invalid truth.”
