These managers never seem to focus on the perfect circle. Instead,
their first comment calls attention to the inconsequential mistake.
They ask for trivial back-up data that you failed to bring with you to
the presentation. They imply that maybe you have misunderstood the
politics surrounding the situation and therefore have written the
email with a more aggressive tone than appropriate. Rather than the
positive result, their focus lands on the “gotcha.”
