Clean Up Your Toxic Workplace
by Dr. Linda Burrs - Feb, 2011
Organizations with sound diversity and inclusion strategies frequently experience higher rates of creativity, are able to hire and retain the best and brightest talent and make product development a priority in order to stay competitive.

A “We” Attitude
by Suzanne Bates - Dec, 2010
I once had an employee who took one of our new folks to a client meeting. When it was over, this veteran insisted they take the afternoon to go shopping and out to lunch. When the new employee raised an eyebrow and said perhaps they should get back to the office, the veteran cajoled her into compliance. ”Don’t worry,” this employee said, “It’s no big deal. You and I deserve this.” Please don’t get me wrong; we all goof ...

With this as a backdrop, he goes on to demonstrate that the proper use of checklists can minimize ineptitude-related problems to maximize performance. Using doctors, pilots, and construction managers he shows how to use...
