Yes, I can be contemptuous, when I see something obvious, but others around me can't see the forest for the trees. Must I always protect others feelings, even, when speaking the truth? Don't get me wrong, it is actually a good thing seeing the details, but not when you spend hours and hours in meetings focusing on the minute, not moving forward and missing the point entirely. Focusing on small details does not move an organisation forward, it is however good for setting up good quality control procedures, and refining systems in place, but not when you trying to change the system entirely.
So, no, I'm not apologising this time. I waste too much time at work, trying to bring the focus outwards.
Yes, I get frustrated! I'm in a industry dominated by sensors, and I wouldn't change it, but leading a team still focused on refining and picking out small problems on old techniques, and data, when I'm introducing something new can bring the stress levels up a mite.
