We can tell when someone’s being brave. When someone is doing important work for important reasons, something we can get behind. When you pick out gifts just for us, and when you regift last-minute.

Someone doesn’t Iike your work.
They have an opinion about the way you do things, or your communication style, or your priorities. Let them:
- It comes from another world. It’s based on something they’ve done before that worked for them. That doesn’t mean its the best way, or the only way. Is being from another world OK with you?
- It’s from what they’re used to. Something different is something different. Different doesn’t mean better or worse. Is ‘different’ OK with you?
- Familiarity hurts our heads less. So unfamiliarity creates push-back within most people. People need bringing around to new ideas. Is leading that change OK with you?
Too many differing opinions usually results in watered down work. If you answered “Yes” to the above questions, then you were probably right all along.
