Thank you! It’s so true. There are loads of things that go unsaid because it’s scary to say to someone. “You know, if you just did this it would have made that presentation/meeting/interaction so much better”, but only the most close-minded of us wouldn’t want to know how to be better. It’s just being able to have those conversations is hard. If I start by calling myself out on areas I am worried about then it might make it easier for those conversations to happen. I’ll look up that book, too.
Hopefully I can make sure I’m not going to be the example in Wikipedia alongside the Peter Principle article!
