A Note From Rene’
Happy summer! While most of us are thinking about our vacation plans, others are looking at their 3rd quarter goals and deciding if the annual goals are going to happen.
While some businesses are harmonious when it comes to their teams, others are not so fortunate. Do you think about conflict in the workplace? Do you accept that it can actually be healthy dialogue? The two articles I’m sharing this month discuss how to make disagreements productive, and how to make feedback a team habit.
So, while you’re on the beach enjoying a well-deserved break from the office, take a few minutes to read these articles from HBR. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll implement some ideas when you return back to the office.
As always, if I can be of any assistance, please reach out.
Have a safe, hopefully long weekend celebrating July 4th.
