This week I’m sharing an article I wrote for an e-magazine.

In this article, you will find commentary on what I have learned and some conclusions I have formulated – particularly about the misuse of authority – while observing, experiencing and hearing about workplaces over the last 40 years. During these 40 years I have been the person everyone shouts at and a person who shouts at everyone. When neither of those contributed to my well being I became a mediator. In the last 15 years I have become a consultant, trainer, facilitator, author and coach. My intention is to open awareness to what I consider to be mainstream thinking, so some of these reflections are intended to be disruptive. What I’m asking of you is to allow the possibility of my opinions, even if you feel resistant.
