At least the company recognizes this a juvenile way to deal with conflict. You are wrong I am right set aside, this behavior hurts already incompetent companies. In the real world not everyone agrees and that is okay. So kudos to that director.

Problem is, this doesn't always work as planned. (a thousand 's)
