Am I willing to be corrected?
Am I willing to apologize?
How long has it been since someone corrected me and I thanked them for their candor?Or do we put a shell of protection around ourselves? Do we ask others to tiptoe around us? Do we make it easy for someone to challenge us? Or does it take a heroic act of courage for someone on your team to speak up and tell you something you need to hear? Wise people are people that allow a rebuke, a correction, a suggestion to go in deeply and make an impact on their behavior.
