I’ve always been amazed at the emotions conjured up when people talking about doing large presentations to a group of people and instead of referring to them by name, refer to them as their titles.

Or if they have to have a on-one-on with someone in the position of authority over their job refers to them solely as a title.

When we do this, we are granting this person the persona of Wizard of Oz, whether they want it or not.

Most times they don’t want it, most times they simply want to have a straightforward conversation, rooted in honesty, respect and the shared passion for making something happen.
