A friend of mine shared that one of our volunteers approached him and asked “I have issues with the schedule that [another team leader] sent out this week. What do I do about it?”
My friend replied “Our team isn’t like that. You can speak to that leader directly without fearing a relational grenade. We value relationships. Go talk to him.”
Sure enough, they were best friends the next weekend.
Do members of your team hesitate to speak up…because of relational grenades?
Thanks for listening.
