On the other hand, if I can see the fear in your eyes, then I'm not sure that learning alone will take care of the problem. No one can prove that the path you're on is risk free or guaranteed to work. Searching for more proof is futile. Searching for more determination makes more sense.
This really resonated with me, as someone who's not only doing my own thing at work, but also educating/training/inspiring colleagues to change some aspects of how they work. I think it's true that learning alone is not enough. I keep getting asked to speak at company events, sit in on conference calls, and brainstorm with other teams. But my teaching is not enough; people have to be determined to hear the message and act on it. That's way harder.
Are you determined to change?
