Seek First to Understand

The committee didn't like another committee's proposed practice and could see no benefit in adopting it. They thought it was a power move. Instead of proposing an alternative of their own, they entirely ignored the matter.

No one said, "Assume they're not crazy or simply driven by emotion. What could be a reasonable basis or argument for the proposed practice?"

That omission was a big mistake.
