(Every Friday, I am honored and delighted to turn this space over to Mr. Engagement, one of the world’s leading authorities when it comes to Engagement and its related intangibles. I hope you enjoy his contributions to the conversation. JG)
Dear Mr. Engagement:
I prefer things to be very businesslike and rational. I like flow charts and spreadsheets and regression analyses. They’re nice. Tidy. They make me feel that things are under control.
Once you start dealing with all of this people stuff, though, things can get kind of, well...messy. Can you help?
Dear Mr. Clark:
Your desire for tidiness does not constitute proof of the absence of messiness. Learn to cope.
Yours in Othership,
