“Progress is impossible without change; and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” ― George Bernard Shaw

Today we start with Chapter 1 in our Think Again series. A Preacher, a Prosecutor, a Politician, and a Scientist walk into your mind.

We often favor feeling right over being right:

- Preacher mode when our sacred beliefs are in jeopardy. We deliver sermons to protect and promote our ideals.

- Prosecutor mode when we recognize flaws in other people's reasoning. We craft the perfect argument to prove them wrong and win our case.

- Politician mode when we are seeking to win over an audience: we campaign and lobby for the approval of others

Worse yet, these three personas or modes work together in concert to create some really nasty outcomes. You don't have to browse around on wikipedia or the news for too long until you can see this in effect.

During this episode, Tiffany and Robert discuss how to overcome the Preacher, Prosecutor, and Politician modes in ourselves to help accelerate trust with our teams and the people around us.
