  1. Another great podcast. Here’s my summary takeaway/CliffsNotes:

    For “Confrontation” to work, it must be TSR: Timely – Specific – Respectful

    And we must come from a place of making THEM right, not ME.

    The goal is fourfold:
    1) Solve the problem/s
    2) Advance careers and grown people
    3) Protect the integrity and values of the business (failing to address sends wrong signals to staff who do the right things)
    4) Protect the client experience

    If you don’t confront issues as they come up the results will be much worse than had you Respectfully addressed the Specific issues in Real Time.
