"Making things work better anywhere in the organization is in everyone’s best self interest. The real threat to increased production should not be from within an organization but rather, from our competitors.” Dr. Pam Straker

Meltdowns can easily occur in office settings. Mounting personal and work-related stresses, financial concerns, multi-tasking, company budget reductions, and additional job tasks are just some of the circumstances you are required to manage. It’s easy to see how gossip, personal attacks and other unproductive activities can get out of control.

When and performance and production begin to suffer, how does an effective and efficient manager respond?  What do you do to build a spirit of collaboration, respect and mutual benefit?
