When I present my ideas, my intent is just to provide what I know or think without bias. The information just… is. The good, the bad, and the ugly all need to be in front of the decision maker(s) to have a chance at a quality decision. From my perspective, the information I provide belongs to the group or individual making the decision not myself. This is based on principles of Baha’i consultation which I have used for years.
Trying to force agreement by influencing a decision through information control, I think has the opposite effect. People may sense the agenda and resist being manipulated. Anything said forward from that point would be suspect and minimized and possibly outright ignored. People can handle the truth.
