There are so many stories of companies that had disastrous outcomes because they refused to consider feedback.
The Titan Sub is one more.
Here is an article published by ABC News relating to this story.
Did you catch it?
In my book WINX – The Problem-Solving Model to Win Exponentially with Customers, Employees & Your Bottom Line, I researched and shared numerous stories of companies that made huge mistakes because they either refused to consider or were not open to feedback.
I also learned during my book research that most decisions are emotional. I didn’t even want to accept that until I really thought about it.
Reach out for feedback. Help others feel psychologically safe when doing so! Then, consider it! It might save lives, your business, your job, or even your reputation.

In a race against the clock on the high seas, an expanding international armada of ships and airplanes searched Tuesday, June 20, 2023, for the submersible that vanished in the North Atlantic while taking five people down to the wreck of the Titanic.
