In this week’s Dial P audio podcast, Kelly Barner takes two ideas, both desirable, and asks if they can co-exist. One is paradigm shifts, and the other is expertise. It is easy to see that people don’t like change, but are we rewarded for building up expertise in the exclusion of new ideas? Do we build walls around our mindset and point of view that make us impervious to paradigm shifts?
To underscore the need to find inspiration from a number of sources, Kelly quotes and pulls perspectives from John Dominic Crossan, Jennifer Ulrich, Malcolm Gladwell, Charles Darwin, Max Planck, Thomas Kuhn, Rita Gunther McGrath, and Barbara Kingsolver.
