Your worst political sting?

Happy Friday Savages.


I was recently catching up with an old colleague and found out through the grapevine I was a little "too honest" in my exit survey when I left six months ago and the feedback ruffled the feathers of two very senior sales leaders and that they would not ever hire me agin. I was under the impression I had left on very good terms and them and they were probably two of the highest value people in my network, so it hit me like a ton of bricks when I found out that wasn't the case.


I guess my lesson learned is don't say shit ever, although I stand by the feedback I gave them, but now it came back to bite me in the ass and definitely wasn't worth venting in the exit survey.


I'm curious, do you have any political stings or mistakes from your career that you'll never make again?

The harshest words are also sometimes the truest. what you said or the feedback you gave is probably something those 2 leaders know about but don't want to accept so they get defensive and angry enough to tell others. keep doing you and you probably were right if this is the case.Β

A lot of time this comes down to the delivery. Was it from you to them directly or did a third party deliver what you said to them? That takes out the context and leaves open space for people to project into, since people don't like feedback that open spaced got filled with negative assumptions on it. Pretty wild! People do this with anything written too.Β
