“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
Sir Winston Churchill

Sometimes the best demonstration of power comes from shutting your mouth and opening your mind to the thoughts and perspectives of another.
What is the downside? You just might learn something new.
