Raise Your Hand

When we are young, we are trained to raise our hand when we have a question. But then we are rewarded when we raise our hand with an answer. 

Thus, a pattern begins. 

We stop raising our hand when we have questions, and we begin raising our hands only when we have answers. 

Nothing halts creativity and ingenuity faster in an organization than valuing and rewarding good answers over great questions.
