Your colleague is having a bad day (or week, or life). She grabs the empty chair from beside your desk, rolls it over and flops down, legs spread, head back, arms dangling—defeated. She proceeds to unload her troubles on you. You get all the gory details. Once the story is complete, she looks you in […]

Imagine this scenario. You gave a presentation at your team meeting today.  It was a progress report on your big project.  Around the table, heads nodded.  Then this afternoon, as you walked down the hallway, you overheard a conversation between two teammates.  One was complaining loudly about what a “crock” your presentation was and how […]

If you’re going to make your team healthier, you need to shut down gossip. So many people have asked me how they can get out of this situation gracefully that […]

If you even think about using social media to address an issue with a teammate, you have crossed the line. You’ve ceased to be the victim and become the aggressor. What got me thinking about this today? It was an article forwarded to me by my colleague Lisa Langley.  You can read it here. It’s the story […]
