Thanks for providing your experience! Yes, I did this too .. I may have been quiet but I was furiously capturing every note, adding ideas and questions as I went. I was assessing all that info, defining the problems, drafting up solutions, but no one could tell that’s what I was doing. Silence is so misleading! That’s why I advocate speaking up *and* I advocate managers to take note of these different communication styles so that they don’t jump to wrongful assumptions.
