We simply assume that the way we see things is the way they really are or the way they should be. And our attitudes and behaviors grow out of these assumptions.
—Stephen R. Covey
Business leaders tend to make assumptions every day, based on their own experiences. They often assume that they have the skills and insight to deal with the situations at hand, even when they are ill-equipped to do so. No one has the ability to view all situations from all perspectives at once. Likewise, no one has all the necessary skills to make every decision every time.
