Ted’s feeling pretty good. He sits across from me in the conference room and says, “Program launch is solid. We’ve been working on the details for almost a month. We vetted the concept with all the affected teams and made tweaks, and now they’re fine.

I've ended up in these moments myself, multiple times in my career. I like the analogy here as well as the framework for considering how to detect and impending situation like this. I don't think you can always detect these situations, but experience gives you the sense when they are approaching.

The ship would soon receive a distress signal from the Kobayashi Maru, a civilian freighter within the Klingon Neutral Zone that had been heavily disabled. A critical part of a manager’s job lies in their ability to appropriately act in unusually complex, unexpected, and perhaps no-win scenarios, but you know what’s better? The swift response starts with someone raising their hand virtually or otherwise and what they say or type immediately differentiates this situation from your unexpected daily developments. A complete surprise, An intense adverse reaction, Via a population of humans raising their hands in protest who you did not expect, Including a new piece of critical information you had no idea belonged in this situation. Since success is dependent on initial perception, when that larger than expected reaction emerges, I go into extreme denial and start lying to myself.
