I knew it was happening while I was in the middle, but I couldn’t stop it. I’m bad.
But, imagine how much more we could all accomplish – for ourselves and our companies – if we stopped the bickering and territory battles!
If politics were taken out of the corporate world, and we all worked together – no matter what department you sat in or work you performed, no matter what you were paid or how long you’ve been in the role, no matter who was your boss or what hours you worked – wouldn’t we all accomplish more?
Think about it.

I don’t know when it happened but it officially became fall in the Northern Hemisphere. Typically I would moan at this thought, which makes me think about how many bags of leaves I need to rake this season (typically 100 around my house,) or worse yet, that winter and the freezing temperatures are approaching. But this year I’m hoping the new season brings a breath of fresh air. This summer, I realized my parents are getting old. Three out of the four had a significant health problem. And while, thankfully, all are doing better now, it made me face the reality that needs, plans and provisions need to change.
It happens to our products too.
