Monster ChallengeWe love our work, and we really enjoy having fun with it.   So we decided to create a “fun” place to identify organizational challenges – lovingly referred to as “monsters,” along with some tips for how to tame those creatures.  Monsters have a way of sabotaging successful change efforts, eroding a workplace culture of respect, negatively impacting morale and performance…You know, those situations that just take the fun out of being part of the team.
