POSITIVE CONFRONTATIONS!!


I have for the longest time been a believer in positive confrontations.  All too often, supervisors, managers, and yes even some executives only use or know how to use negative confrontations.   That is a tragedy and travesty.  This is not just using them in a business environment, but also in our own personal lives.  We are quick to send reviews or complaints to companies or businesses but all too often we seem to feel we do not have the time to say a good word when it is deserved.  The problem is all around us.  We are just too quick to correlate the term "confrontation" with the word "negative."  It shouldn't be that way

Positive feedback and confrontation should be important and necessary for any successful person.  I found the enclosed brief post when looking at a particular blog.  It summarizes much but not all of what I believe in positive confrontations.  Take a look and let me know your thoughts.

Have a great week.

With roughly more than 800 stores and close to 100,000 employees, Best Buy was a big company.  It was in that time period that Best Buy was reeling from ineffective management, lackluster consumer demand, serious online competition and what your will find was a really screwed up IT operation.  Financial analysts were suggesting it should file for bankruptcy  The story is intriguing, readable and fascinating.  It also shows you what a great CEO can do if they want to.

Listening to the Great Ideas of your Employees!!

On Tuesday, February 7, 2012, the Wall Street Journal wsj.com had a great article entitled, "Boeing Teams Speed Up 737 Output."  The link for this article is: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203436904577155204034907744.html?KEYWORDS=David+Kesmodel Boeing Teams Speed Up 737 Output Jet Maker's Innovation Crews Search for Ways to Streamline Production as Aircraft Demand Soars By DAVID KESMODEL RENTON, Wash.—As Boeing Co. strives to lift production of its best-selling 737 jetliner to meet surging airline demand, it is turning to workers like Jay Dohrmann to streamline work. Mr. Dohrmann, a brawny, 46-year-old engineer at the 737 plant here, is part of an extensive effort the company has underway to rally employees for ways to make its jets more efficiently and avoid expanding its factories and its costs. These innovation teams are growing as Boeing seeks to increase output of the narrow-body, workhorse plane by as much as 71%.
