Great insight today from Mike Maples, a partner with the Venture Capital firm Floodgate.  “Ego is about who’s right.  Truth is about what’s right.”  Seeking the truth in the situation is generally the best approach to solving real problems.  Some look first for a person or a department to blame.  Others rush to resolve too quickly.  It’s often helpful to slow down and work through the problem to diagnose the root cause and work toward the most feasible solution.  This can be as simple as asking the five why’s to truly learn about the truth.
