But you know, in my job, I find it more prevalent that there’s an awful lot of things at work that we should be saying – but don’t. And I don’t mean those “I love the work you do” express-the-unspoken-gratitude-and-appreciation-for-your-colleagues-more-than-you-do things . I mean, real, legitimate definitive discourse about things we do, and the things we don’t do.
Here are some of mine – and as you might imagine if you have perused prior postings heretofore mine come mainly the the form of questions.
- Who, exactly, is “they”?
What do you think [word phrase] means in this situation?
- What data do we have that backs up that assertion?
- Thanks for that data, can you tell me how it was generated?
- How does this help us get to where we want to be?
- I don’t think that this has worked like we thought it would. Let’s try something different.
- I don’t know.
That’s my 10 off the top – what are yours?
