I love your comment on letting employees vent a little. To your point, there’s obviously a point where venting becomes chronic complaining and they need to move forward… but up to that point, I think we all just want to be heard, right? I think most of us can live with the fact that we won’t love every decision made at work, but so long as someone (ideally our boss) gives us the courtesy of hearing us out, we’re far more likely to ultimately be able to accept the direction and go with it. Thanks for reading, Rob!
