Sometimes authority caught the wrong person's.
I was attached in a multinational corporations, got caught in install fake product activation key, and i was sacked after a series of meeting and a domestic inquiry, i have told them that i have corrected the issues and it is back to original settings, before i resigned, but they didn't buy that.
Now i have work Temporarily for 2 months in another smaller company, with a run down systems and server, the second day i worked the Computer Server died, and i was recommended to virtualize the systems, while doing restoration of the data, nobody knows the password.
And this person is still working in the company, and no actions was taken against him.
Think twice before deciding which side you are on, while you are listening to other people trash-talking their managers, colleagues, or partners. ⚠️
According to a recent study, by siding with the interlocutor, we are just adding more fuel to the conflict, which discourages the interlocutor to forgive and make peace with the other party.
To be supportive, we do not have to choose a side. The most important thing is to create a safe space for the other person to vent their emotions and collect one's thoughts.
We can do it by asking open questions, such as:
✔️ What happened?
✔️ How does it make you feel?
✔️ Why is it important for you?
✔️ What is the next step?
Remember that our goal as good conversational partners is not to condemn anyone but rather be patiently present with the other person. 👌
