Do you love your car?

Dealing with difficult or challenging behaviour wears you out and slows you down. If you are a driver you’ll know that in order to move unhindered your car works best with the handbrake off. Driving with the handbrake on can be disastrous; it strains and overheats the engine, burns out break pads, slows the car down and even causes total seizure as it finally expires due to all the unnecessary effort of working against itself – engine versus brakes in a self-defeating contest with no winner.

Challenging Behaviour slows things down

Quite a lot of people function like this at work. The ‘brakes’ in this case are ineffective or destructive relationships – difficult behaviour – that burn up energy, and distract or prevent people from doing the job they are paid to do to the best of their ability.

Problems with binding brakes can be spotted and corrected when the car undergoes routine maintenance. Many work groups and teams are overdue a service where problems can be identified and given the care and attention they deserve. Make no mistake, difficult or challenging behaviour can do real damage if it’s allow to continue.
