    Slight modification: dangerous and/or coworkers.

  2. JeffP says:

    Actually, remove the dot for sales, draw a line between “wise” and “dangerous”, and label the line “sales” :D

  3. Alex says:

    Shouldn’t dangerous = sales?

  4. mike says:

    x2 w/Alex. Sales *definitely* needs to be lower-right quadrant. Superimposed by Marketing, of course.

    @JeffP

    Perfect.

    after a lot of years supporting tech sales people, I learned the difference between a car salesperson and a computer/network salesperson: a car salesperson knows when they are telling a lie!

    Along what nat said, computer salesmen usually have almost no expertise, if any.

    Yeah, I gotta say that wisdom requires condifence. A quiet confidence; the right kind of confidence.

  11. RobW says:

    Expertise = true communication, confidence = action, a balance of true communication and action = sales. Conversely, confidence with out knowledge, wisdom for honesty = dangerous or short term gain with long term failure.

    RobW, in what world does one not differentiate between expertise and communication, but rather say that “expertise = true communication”? Ah yes, that’s right, sales.
