You'll get into situations at work, if you haven't already, where you'll want to prove to someone, or a group of people on your team, that you were right.
That you had the right answer. That you came up with the right solution. That your way was the best way. That the steps you followed were according to protocol. That because of your work, things 'got done.'
But being right (or proving you're right) and coming out the victor is not always the right thing. It can ruin your chemistry and collaboration with people.
Instead of trying to make yourself look good (which is really hard to do without appearing self-centered or desperate ), ask 'what's best for the team?' I'm not naive, I know that in the heat of the moment, this can be difficult. But it's not impossible.
Don't focus on being right. Focus on doing what's right.
