our influence on people

Much of what we believe is “ill-intentioned” in other people is misunderstanding.

And much of what we claim to be our «understanding» of other people is really poor observation and lazy extrapolation.

Does it matter how this dulls our outlook on other people? Of course it does. We are important to our environment.

As leaders we really cannot not influence! It happens anyway. Our responsibility is not if, but how we influence.
