Build golden bridges - Deepstash

Build golden bridges

A last approach before approaching a higher authority is to “Build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across.”

When you realize you are getting in an office battle zone, start gathering evidence to block all exits besides the one you consider fair. Instead of directly confronting a bully, present the facts and explain how these errors seriously threaten his or her employment in the long term. Then present the solution you want them to get to.
