One person


What you want to do is spend time talking about customers and value add and improvements and next steps and action points. What you want to do is use your time to push things forward, to set things up, to nudge and provoke and get people on board and working together and enthusiastic that they’re involved. What you want to do is add energy to the kinds of people who add energy right back at you.

That what you want.

At some point though, on every team, you spend more time than you want to talking about one person. Talking to them. Listening to others talking – which means, in this context, complaining – about them. Unloading on your significant other about your frustrations with them.

The only thing you now need to talk about … how to move them out of your team.

Skippy strategy: As soon as you know, act.
