Picture a star player picked first in the draft and then immediately sat on the bench to wait out a few seasons while they get the lay of the land.

We’ve all experienced a boss who takes to yelling, pounding tables, or glowering when something doesn’t go well or meet their expectations. Leaders who resort to these displays probably think that they’re communicating their displeasure in a way that will motivate team members to do better. But it usually has the opposite effect.  If someone [...]

Are We Helping Our Team to Grow?

2021-06-09T05:43:38+00:00
