Discussion on: What is helpful, if you want to help

Thank you for the list. For number 2, don't forget the power of leading questions. "Did you check...?" "Have you read...?" "Why do you think it's behaving that way?" The goal is to teach someone to think. It's harder and more frustrating that just giving someone the answer, but far far more rewarding.

And for 3, absolutely be humble, but if you're senior or a leader, be confident with it. Own what you know as well as what you don't know, and help others understand how you close that gap.
