Being a self-reflective professional means answering
more than the questions that your customer or supevisor asks you, but
to propose new questions yourself and work to find those answers, too. The most successful professionals can: - recognize and explain polarized perceptions; - describe contradicting perspectives; - debate simultaneous issues;- recognize biases and limits.

the Reflect part of Step #2 because acknowledging and learning from
prediction error are natural skills people are usually born with: - What was the last step? - What did you expect? - What actually happened? - What did you learn? Sources: Rother, M. (2018).
