So, you’re busy trying to get on with the next in line of never-ending changes in your organization but you’ve got THAT person on your team: The person who moans and complains at every request and drones on about how horrible everything is. First of all, I’m sorry you have to deal with that. Second, […]

“Do you agree that we should pick our battles?” This was a question I got during the Q&A session of a keynote speech I gave last week. I think I surprised the questioner with my response, which means I might surprise you too, so here goes. If you are “picking battles,” you’re getting conflict all […]

We’re not having enough conflict. We need more conflict to trigger innovation, mitigate risks, surface issues that could erode trust, and to advocate for ourselves.

I’m going to write a few posts that capture some of the ideas I might include in the book. Then I need […]

I was treated to such a nice Mothers’ Day this year. While enjoying my breakfast in bed, I watched a really interesting documentary on the English castle at Dover. (This was the trifecta for me: documentary, about anything British, with ties to World War II history!) The show detailed the insurmountable walls and impenetrable defenses […]

Over breakfast this morning, Craig shared a story of a really annoying teammate behavior. I agreed wholeheartedly, “phew, that IS annoying!” and then pitched in with another super-duper annoying thing people do. The second begat a third, and the third a fourth, and that’s how my morning cup of tea turned into a rant about […]

With constructive and mature feedback, you’re likely to make progress because bad behavior among members of the team reflects poorly on your […]
