Seeking someone to blame

Difficult decisions require critical thinking.

And when we are stuck, often, we want to bring someone in the mix to help us make a choice.


If your the expert in this situation, what are we looking for?

Two things:



Someone to blame.

If I’m wrong I can shift the blame over to someone. “Why did you talk me into this?”

And because of the tension of uncertainty, we need to be told, “It’ll be okay.”

If you really are in the best position to make the call, make it. Without the narrative.
