When Being Yourself Causes Others To Feel Intimidated
Poornima Vijayashanker

Nice post — and I admit I’ve received similar feedback myself.

I DID get some specific details, however. Apparently my face is very expressive and if I don’t work on it, people know very quickly when I disagree with a point they’re making. :-)

Asking yourself if rocking the boat is a risk worth taking is huge. It can get really easy to feel compelled to fall into line and submit to the corporate culture. But here’s the biggest question: do you want to work at a place where harmony is valued over all else? (because the fact there were no specific details of what she was doing wrong tells me it doesn’t even matter: anything you do that makes someone else uncomfortable is wrong). Or do you want to work at a place that values individuals, as imperfect as we all are?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
