It is applicable when a subject is emotionally charged and the people who might have spoken up decide that it is probably best avoided.addresses, affect, avoids, begin, best, bring, communication, contributes, conversation, courage, discuss, dynamics, elephant, enables, everyone, face, feeling, gets, going, important, insights, issue, kantor, lead, level, listed, needed, outcome, people, person, powerful, preoccupied, quality, questions, really, recognises, reflect, response, risks, room, saying, situation, start, subject, test, theory, thinking, unaddressed, voicing, wants
