Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides?

    Hold anyone accountable. Master performance discussions. Get RESULTS. Behind the problems that routinely plague our organizations and families, you'll find individuals who are either unwilling or unable to deal with broken promises. Colleagues break a rule, coworkers miss a deadline, friends fail to live up to commitments (or just plain behave badly), and nobody says a word. Nobody holds anyone accountable. With repeated infractions, individuals become increasingly upset until they finally do speak their minds, but they do so poorly--often creating whole new sets of problems. Research proves that mishandled disappointments aren't just morale killers, they're institution...read more
