  • An Expert or Expertise

    There’s a subtle but big difference between an expert and expertise. Both focus on problems and solutions – which is right. But an expert speaks in the language of an expert; expertise speaks in the language of the people.

    An expert or expertise: you might be saying – same thing  — right? Well, no.

    An expert is someone who comes in and delivers their theory through interpretation and experience, and it could be world-class or less so, but Courtesy: Galina-Barskaya/PhotoXpress Free Imagesit’s how they see it, and what they think you should be doing to align more closely with that very thing.

    Yet, expertise is when someone is still well-versed theory and interpretation and how it relates to the people who need to effectively execute it. The subtle but big difference between an expert and expertise: the expert is focused on the problem and solutions – which is right. Yet, expertise is when you are still focused on the problem and solution, but expertise also focuses on how the theory relates and affects the people, who need to carry it out. Expertise also creates a personalized vernacular, so that the people, who need to operate and capture their goals, can have a narrative that makes sense to them – someone that make the most rudimentary details come alive and can connect them to the overarching goal.

    I guess that’s the real difference between an expert and expertise. An expert speaks in the language of an expert: expertise speaks in the language of the people. An expert or expertise: which are you?

    Good Luck.
