Some of the team must decrease arrogance and increase humility.
Arrogance is easy to recognize in others, but seldom in oneself! Sam’s high intelligence often translates into condescension when dealing with his colleagues. Carol is oblivious to the impact of her blunt assessments and look at me behavior. Sanjay is likewise accused by Tammy of rudeness and dismissiveness but deflects this by claiming he does not want to be a doormat for others. Tammy, Casey and Steve make suggestions for how people can show increasing humility and respect, and demonstrate how increased humility creates a better office atmosphere.
