When we go to work, we want things to work well.  We want people to treat each other with respect, maybe even have some fun.  We want satisfying work and that feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day.  We want to feel that our time was used well and that we mattered.  We want good work, good communication, and good working relationships.

But then things get stupid.  Employees throw each other under the bus.  Managers complain about performance reviews and employees dread them. People walk around on eggshells or shoot snarky comments at each other.  “Teamwork” is code for “no one is responsible but now I’m personally on the hook” and we smile and pretend and even say, “It’s all good!”

Nobody’s talking.  Not about the important things anyway.  Maybe a trainer is brought in to teach “anger management” or “how to use the performance management software.”  You often want to break the silence and speak the obvious but you don’t.  It seems like a career limiting thing, to do the right thing.

But imagine for a moment the possibility that whatever we’re not talking about actually comes out and we all stand around looking at it like scientists and say, “Wow! Look at that! Glad we barfed that up, better out than in!”

And then we decide that it feels so good to get it out that maybe we’ll have a conversation, listen to each other, and figure out where to go from here.  We all take a deep breath and the oxygen returns to the brain and we agree to be real andrespectful.

If you’re ready to cut through the crap and get back to work without all the tension and BS, call me.

When you work with me, you work with me.  I tend to your business personally without subcontractors or apprentices.
