Thanks, Patrick. I’m really surprised at how much this resonates with others. I guess I just thought I was “special” and most of this stuff only happened in the places I work. It is a bit disheartening to find out 1) I’m not special and 2) these problems are widespread. I believe the root of these problems lie within organizational behavioral issues. Many of our organizations are broken. Perhaps that topic is a future article.
