Understanding is one of the keys to developing a long term relationship with anyone, being it in your personal life or in the corporative environment. It does not matter if you are a well succeeded professional that seems to know about everything, deep down you have your own weaknesses, just like anyone else.
There are several other reasons why we are not capable of knowing and doing every single thing on the planet. We are all born with strong and weak points what makes sharing knowledge much more logical. Living in society clearly shows us that giving each other a hand is what should be done. If you can do it better than your friend, why not help him? Life is about learning and help others learn from your actions. It is not about correcting your weak points, it is basically about letting others help you see other ways to do things. That is why trust and cooperation are the keys!
