That's a great way to gain the other person's perspective. I'm not the most understanding person, but I've learned that most times other people's behavior makes more sense if you can adopt their mindset. Keep trying to come up with a set of motives and beliefs that make their attitude and behavior reasonable. And we are very complex, so we can't stop when we get conflicting info. We have to adjust.

The other thing I think is that you can develop the mindset that you're serving the others in that organization that have to deal with this person. It gives your work a cause. Serving the leader and the team by helping everyone succeed and build that trust is a big job. But it is also rewarding in the relationship skills you develop.

Great post. Thanks!
