  • Fridays at the Corridor - Got Jerks At Work

    Competent jerks are a fact of life in all organizations, especially start-ups with brilliant people who are passionate about their ideas and may not have the best social skills. Removing them from the organization is often not an option. Instead, you need to improve your self-awareness to take actions to help you, coach them in ways that don't annoy them and actively help others in the organization.

    At the February Fridays @ the Corridor event, Liz Guthridge, a behavior design and lean communications expert, will lead a presentation focused on helping companies deal with jerks and reducing their adverse effects on others in an organization. Learn more and register HERE.
