Sometimes we react strongly against something someone else says. Or we see other people being surprisingly critical and dismissive of what seems pretty innocuous but useful information.
The very strength of the reaction might be telling us something.
We tend to push away what we need. As a teacher of mine said, “Those who are most different from us have the greatest gift for us.”
Just because the team doesn’t like something (or someone), doesn’t mean they don’t need the input. In fact, it might be the exact opposite. The strength of the reaction could be showing it’s exactly what they need. If there wasn’t some adverse reaction then the contribution wasn’t challenging enough.
It could be that stronger the reaction, the more right something is (and we can infer that we are on the right track).
And if we are initially uncomfortable or even aghast at something, it might exactly what we need.
Are you mindful of this?
