When the Expert is ignored

One of my friends -- a former co-worker from the Low Rent Consulting Company in fact -- posted this on Facebook.

The video, in case the link breaks or disappears from YouTube, is called The Expert.  It shows a meeting in which everyone is either ridiculous or obsequious. Everyone except Anderson the engineer, of course.

So many businesses truly run like this. So many times co-workers or clients will come to you and call you the expert. This is shortly before they tell you they know better.   I can definitely relate as I went through this last year with Mr Magoo and Sara.  It was a very frustrating time in my life at TopFive and I never want to go through it again.

Comments Encouraged! And the nice thing about this blog is that I rarely get spam so don't need to moderate the comments.

I've set the comments up to allow anonymous users -- but I'd love it if you "signed" your comments (as some of my readers have done) just so you have an identity of sorts.
