Good post.

The situation is even worst when Jerry is your boss! Getting a colleague to take the feedback is a challenge in itself and getting him to act on the feedback is a much greater challenge.

Having a boss accept the feedback and act on it is pretty much impossible. The only hope is that Jerry's boss has already provided such feedback and will make sure it is addressed, otherwise people will have to working with Jerry-the-pain-in-the-butt.

Martin,

Indeed. Working it "upward" has a set of challenges that collegial feedback doesn't; or, at least it seems that way, given the power structure of most organizations.

FYI: Just spoke with someone who got multiple, identical bits of feedback and insists that they are all wrong.

How can they be "wrong"? It's descriptive, independent, and includes examples.

Time for another experiment. . .

Hi Steve, a thought:

Ask Jerry what the one common denominator is with the 87 folks who don't understand him...not unlike asking one who complains about a succession of failed relationships...what's the one common denominator among all your partners...

the short answer: me

the jouney of unveiling self-deception
