Q: Our veterinarian brings her infant to work every day. Our team lags behind with our work because if the baby starts fussing we have to drop what we're doing and take care of the baby. What can we do?
Does your team argue instead of looking for solutions? Could your team use help handling upset clients? If so, this Team Meeting in a Box is for you. The tools teach how to communicate during conflict.
My well-meaning boss will frequently say to a team member who isn't performing up to par, "You should be more like (another employee)."

Does this management approach have any real positives?
