Personnel suggestions

People make personnel suggestions all the time.

In athletics players might approach their coach with a suggestion of a different starting lineup.

In business an employee might approach their boss with a suggestion for a new member of a committee.

How much more credibility would the player have if their suggested starting lineup took them from the lineup to the bench?

How much more credibility would the employee have if their suggestion involved them losing responsibility and maybe even compensation?

Too often people will suggest something that might adversely affect others but rarely will they suggest something that might adversely affect themselves.

It is a lot easier to take a person seriously when their suggestions don’t always affect them positively and others negatively

Have a great day!
