Recommended Read: ‘”I don’t know”. Uncertainty as a platform for growth’ from the Be Your Whole Self website

Alongside her work as a leading consultant on social media for business, Dionne Lew also creates the Be Your Whole Self  website on which she blogs to support people to be their “whole, complex beautiful” selves.

Dionne writes beautifully and with succinctness, clarity and insight, regardless of whether she is writing about social media or self realisation. I particularly enjoy the blogs she posts on Be Your Whole Self, which cover a range of issues. Many, I feel, contain valuable insights around leadership. One which stayed with me after I read it was ‘I don’t know’. Uncertainty as a platform for growth. 

I like this blog because I reckon that, as a society, too many of us are in way too much of a hurry to appear certain, and in so doing we block ourselves off from avenues of exploration or necessary expressions of honesty or nuance.

Admitting to not knowing is not necessarily a weakness; learning to function in a state of temporary uncertainty is important and sometimes a necessary evil and sometimes the start of an exciting journey. Creative ideas often spring from uncertainty.

Anyhow, that’s just my opinion. Read Dionne’s piece – it contains many words of wisdom.
