Not too long ago, I was at an HR event with HR speakers. It was a good event, well attended, but there was something that really bothered me. It kept showing up in the fine lines between the big ideas. It showed up shod in steel-toed boots with pointy heels, when comfortable shoes would have been better. The irritant can sound different—can use different words– but is ultimately the same in a distressing way.
What is this bothersome thing?
