A supervisor in another department really irritates Keira. Keira has never shared this annoyance with anyone. One
day, Keira was asked to attend a meeting led by the irritating supervisor. As Keira sat in the meeting, she had a hard time focusing on the message. Her mind was wandering through mental noise. At the end of the meeting, Keira was embarrassed that there were no notes to share. Dislike for the irritating supervisor affected her ability to listen and be a good receiver. Keira learned a tough lesson that day and made a commitment to be open to every communication, regardless of liking or disliking the sender.
