As I was researching teams and, specifically, how to fix a dysfunctional team I ran across this advice for team members who aren’t in a leadership role.

I was going to write up a whole post on teams and using conflict to become more productive, but then I realized that I had already written it back in November. On Teams. I suppose it’s fair to say that I’ve learned a bit more about the whole process this week. In analyzing my current […]
I made this story using Adobe Voice – the app was amazing simple to use and produced a high-quality result. Enjoy!
I’ve watched Making A Murderer the whole way through and am blown away by the whole debacle. Leave it to some Redditor and a little It’s Always Sunny to express my feelings so well. I think the allure of the show is in just how *easy* it was for Steven Avery to get thrown in […]

Yeah, I know it’s weird, but this is what you can do with Microsoft PowerPoint’s background remover. It’s Lions coach Jim Caldwell as a giant stone bust, left in a desert wasteland. Watching. Unchanging.
Doug Belshaw’s Things We Learned This Week newsletter is a great resource for inspiration, news & views, and random facts of interest.
