This is a brief one, a bit of venting and I hope most of y'all don't deal with this too often. I use MT to help me be a better manager and communicator. I take the blame when it is mine or I could have done better, and this is killing me politically. I am the only person in the company, it seems, who will say, "oh hey, my bad!" and then move on. Two and a half years and I have literally have never heard an equivalent sentiment from anyone here.
Unclear emails that I try to clarify are met with "you mis-read my email" rather than, "sorry I was unclear". I on the other hand have sent many many emails with the latter phrase in them. This appears to have had the net effect of NO improvement in overall communications, but a negative impact on my reputation as a good/smart/effective employee.
Thanks for listening, and any tips you have about any of this are welcome. I honestly don't think I can make it much longer in an organization like this.
