Reference #19: What Got You Here Won't Get You There
"Adding too much value" is a common behavioural issue among successful people. It arises from the difficulty in listening rather than providing your input.
The main consequence of adding too much value is this: when you provide a suggestion to someone's idea, you may increase its quality by 5% but you also decrease their ownership by 50%.
