Who Is Right When Experts Give Conflicting Advice?

I wanted to talk with you this week about something that happened to me earlier today.

I was watching some training videos from a number of different specialists in their topics and one of them recommended a program that they use for autoresponder messages … for sending emails and managing their database.

And they were going through some of the most popular systems and they said, “This is the one I use. Never, ever, ever use System B because it’s really bad and System C’s not much better. System A is the one that you want to use.”

Then 5 minutes later I’m watching a similar training video by another person who’s also a specialist in their field. But this time the person said, “Never, ever, ever use System A. It’s really bad. I’ve had nothing but problems with it. System B is brilliant and that’s the one I recommend you use.”

And then a 3rd person recommended a different program again.

It got me thinking … so many times we listen to people who are very good at what they do – whether you want to call them experts or gurus or specialists, whatever – they know their stuff and they’re having a lot of success in what they do.

This can be a real challenge in small business management … trying to then decide which advice to listen to.

In the video below I share some reasons as to WHY different leaders will offer conflicting advice and how you can decide which is right for you.

(Or watch this video direct in YouTube here).

I hope that helps you to understand why, sometimes, leaders in a particular industry will give conflicting advice on what they prefer or which is going to be the best system or the best way of doing something.
