“Let someone down, event with good intent or possibly with no intent whatsoever and the damage to your reputation is pervasive and often goes undetected. People become more circumspect, they want more formal confirmation before they move forwards (which costs time and energy), your ability to make decisions quickly is lost. So the ability to show empathy, to realise that what is obvious for you is not for someone with a different background and history, to provide space for necessary differences is key and its where a lot of people fall down.”   Dave Snowden
