Ruminating on her Dameship’s comments below (see Row, Row etc), a comment made to me the other day came to mind. It may be pure gold -and it may not be unique to him – but Wayne Goldsmith (wgcoaching.com) raised a very pertinent point perfectly.

Human beans are just that. Not machines. Empathy and sympathy do matter – a suggestion many of those that I loathe will laugh at.
I’ve been laughed at all my life.
