My friend Lisa called me the other day with a problem. A large corporation hired her as a consultant to shepherd a project. She anticipated a straightforward engagement until…

Now he was spending precious time fighting a fire that could have been avoided in the first place.
How can you help your team to ditch the drama and improve communication?
