Are two heads better than one?

You’ve heard the saying – “Two heads are better than one.”

But do you agree with it?

What about the meetings you’ve had with megalomaniacs suffering from verbal diarrhoea?

Or when you’re listened to in a perfunctory manner.

Or when you know the decision has already been made and the conversation is all about optics?

Or when…

But don’t get me wrong.  I firmly believe that two heads are better than one.  And three can be better than two.

Like a lot of grey areas in life, whether two heads are better than one depends.

I know that “depends” word can be problematic.  But it happens to be accurate.

Are the people looking to listen and, only if appropriate, speak?

Are the people humble?

Are they diverse?

Do the people believe in the potential of 1+1 being = 3+?

What do you see?

Two listeners.

Possibly the man on the right is pondering what the older man on the left has just said.  But there’s an obvious seriousness.  And there appears to be trust in their physical proximity.  What is being talked of is impactful.  There’s a visible vulnerability.  No machismo.

The man on the left is Thomas Edison.  The man on the right is Henry Ford.  They were in a mastermind group together.

A mastermind group can be a powerful enabler.  But it requires the right members.  The members and how they interact determine if the total is greater than the sum of the individual parts.
