If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.

Posted By Monique F. Berry, Tuesday, February 28, 2012
Who we are and how we're perceived is somewhat dependent on the folks we surround ourselves with. If you are always the star of the show or always the smartest in the room, you are not learning anything. You are not being challenged in any way. In order to grow professionally you must be willing to be the student to the master. That can mean surrounding yourself with people smarter than you, more charismatic than you, funnier, more technologically advanced than you, more adept at social media than you…you get the idea. Find your area for growth and follow/connect with people who are just better at it than you are. There's nothing to be gained by being the smartest person in your little room.

Monique -- excellent insight!

Will you be issuing a 'message from the president' for March 2012?
