It’s wrong of us to badmouth a leader. We should also understand that they always find out. The complaints are sometimes entertained by people who feel personally challenged and are wondering if the challenge is reasonable. Those that are not looking for a challenge will often throw in with the complainers. Misery loves company. When we try to win people to our side, we should never assume that everyone shares that sentiment. Those that don’t will eventually express concern to the leader. This isn’t breaking a confidence so much as it’s looking out for the team dynamic. Great teammates that have a problem with the leadership’s decision talk to the leader first.
