• Do you ever hold your opinion inside – and then one day, when you can’t take it any longer, you speak your mind, but by then you’re so upset that comes out all wrong?
• Have you ever been in a discussion where your colleagues were coming to an agreement, but someone in authority then disagreed with the idea, so the whole group changed directions – and then badmouthed the leader after the meeting?
• Do you find yourself getting so caught up in an argument that you forget what you really wanted and just start trying to win? Do people you work with do that?
• Does it sometimes feel unsafe to state your honest opinion because there’s a chance that sharing a differing or unpopular view will come back to haunt you?
