Can I tell you that I disagree, or will you get offended? Can I make suggestions on your slide deck, or will you get curt? Do you prefer I just nod my head and agree with you, or do you actually want to know what I think? Just asking. It’s important to me to understand whether you want the thing to be great, or if you want to be great. Depending on your answer, I will behave differently. Also, depending on your answer, I may not stick around too long.
