Ow the desire to being passive aggressive sending this to some people in the company. But seriously, that is some hard feedback since you are pointing to some insecurities. Even harder dealing higher-ups or diagonally.

Another one I have seen that gets used - "see you in incident / sev review".

Unfortunately, this behavior is not uncommon. I don't like tolerating it and make it clear to the person to have a discussion rather than say that.

Good writing! Short and hits hard.

Great article!

It also creates a bad environment where people are afraid to bring up suggestions and take risks or say an opposing opinion.

I believe that's a subject for a whole other article.

Me too fall into the trap of “desiring credit”, now that I identified and labeled that trap, I can now catch myself. Excellent writing and thank you.

Great article! It's normal to desire credit for being right (and oh is it satisfying!), but constructive feedback on moving forward when something goes wrong is a much better road to take
