Broken Projects Seem Like Part Of The Process

Tags : 

Have you experienced broken projects? Perhaps things didn’t go as planned, perhaps a mistake or two, maybe things snowballed and sunk the whole thing? Estimates are often given by service providers. The estimate represents their best guess on how the project will unfold. The party receiving the estimate expects it to be at that price

Hiding Problems, It Isn’t Useful or Productive

Tags : 

What happens when there is a mistake or you disagree with a solution option? What is your habit for navigating, are you hiding problems? A disagreement with the boss seems like an unlikely path to workplace harmony. However, problems swept under the carpet just mean they’ll be there when the carpet is pulled back and

The Hard Part, How Does It Impact Your Project?

Tags : 

Have you been thinking about the hard part? Do you tackle the hard part first or do you get the easy stuff out of the way? A better question to ask might be, “What is it about the hard part that makes it so difficult?” Results are results. The outcome that you seek, or that

News Story, What Do You Do With It?

Tags : 

You’ve probably already read, watched, or listened to a news story today. Was the story valuable? Was it truthful, useful, and important?

Hard Learning, Have You Experienced It?

Tags : 

Hard learning doesn’t necessarily mean difficult. Have you been known to learn something the hard way? Life is full of lessons if you open your mind to see them.

Reciprocity Expected, Fact or Myth?

Tags : 

Is reciprocity expected? Do you have espoused values that guide you for each favor or do you often expect something in return? A future favor paid back?

Leadership Required, Or Are You Just a Spectator?

Tags : 

Is leadership required? At your job, in your workplace, is more leadership needed? Often people wait for leadership. They stall, stay stuck, or find it more convenient to wait on someone to lead. These people are spectators. The organization that lacks trust also lacks leadership. It can’t be productive or growth-driven. Unless of course, that

Are you on a new journey? Have you ever felt stuck, or feel like you’re at the end? Perhaps not everything is as it first appears. Late May or early June is typically about graduation.
