Have you heard about the dangerous health condition called vergaderziekte?

Some people can get a bit precious about their ideas in meetings, right?
Ever noticed yourself thinking things like, ‘Where’s that person coming from?’ or ‘Can’t they see my idea makes a lot more sense?’
If we're in meetings where lots of ideas are generated, it’s understandable that we can become attached to our own ideas. Fair enough ... well, because they’re ours.
And there might be other reasons why you might be persistent and argue for your ideas. Like not feeling heard, or perhaps feeling undervalued for your contributions. Or maybe the louder ones just get more air-time. It happens.
That's where diamond ranking comes in.
