Time to Detox Your Team?
How’s the weather where you are?
Not the kind of weather that you experience when you walk outdoors, but the weather when you walk in your office.

It’s the elephant in the room, of course. And it’s one of the greatest threats to your business.
In my consulting work over the years, I have realized that one of the greatest challenges facing executives is how to deal with the elephant in the room.
You may have missed that lesson in school. Unfortunately, many executives struggle in this area. Consider it an undervalued “leadership skill.
