Boom, thank you so much Bel!

Super useful and all fixed now.

Have you read the forum guidelines for effective communication already?

At https://thepowermoves.com/courses/power-university/lessons/political-awareness-skills/topic/political-landmines/ :

  1. under #6: “And after you have made your move public, you might turn around only to realize too late that there is walking the talk and backing you up.” [“there is no one walking”]
  2. under #9: “The truth is his: most people will always put themselves…” [“this”] and “The company, which represents the interests of the owners, the shareholders, and the C-suite, will always serve its interest above those of the employees.” [“its interests”] and “When the interests will start diverging… You will realize.” [“start”]
  3. under #11: “Or make what you should always do: …” [“do”] and “Better yet: don’t flirt too much at work” [missing “.” at end of sentence]
  4. under #12: “They communicate there is a group of higher-earner…” [“higher-earners”]
  5. there are two #15 (which makes #16 become #17, and the title of the page possibly change to “17 Political Landmines You Must Know Of”)

[OFF TOPIC]

The sentence in this lesson on the effects of not handling public disrespect was eye-opening: it makes you lose the respect of everyone else faster than light.

In reading it, I instantly understood why people used to treat me as they did. Painful, but I now also understand that from now on this won't ever happen again. Because I agree that nothing is worth tolerating disrespect, and from now on I will sacrifice anything to redress disrespect from wherever it comes.

OFF-TOPIC

Absolutely.

Public VS not public is one of the main variables that moves a power move in the "harm" scale.

On the other hand, when you're the one who has to give tough feedback, you always want to be more power protecting in public settings and when there are others around.

Edit:
And also says a lot about the person who does it publicly.
They're either really clueless -but most people do have a feel for this, so cluelessness is rare-, they don't give a s*it about you, or they willingly wanted to double harm you.

This is very helpful, and I think this should be in PU if not present already, maybe in that same lesson.

Another thought I had about another lesson here: https://thepowermoves.com/courses/power-university/lessons/frame-control-techniques/topic/4-common-mistakes-to-avoid/#3_Reacting_Defending_Justifying

You mention here that one should almost never defend. When I read it, it was immensely helpful. I wondered what defending subcommunicates: as to this, PU mentions that defending makes you fall in the accuser power frame.

Later, I was listening to this video:

He mentions (from here up to 4:18) that people who defend subcommunicate on an instinctive level that they are not so sure of themselves. Because when a person really believes something, that person does not defend, but just totally discount, in thought, words and action, what the other person says.

If it's not already present in PU, maybe a mention of this point could complement what's already there on this topic.

BOOM!

Thank you so much, Bel!

Fixed now.

P.S.:
The correction for one of the items was "drown out".
The risk of having super-engaged folks in your team is that they will drown out the shier ones and that you'll lose the shier folks' input (and, over time, also their engagement).
