Reason to Resolve

Reason to Resolve

2022-09-2629:40

No matter the industry, businesses have to make best practice decisions. But, when you are trying to resolve challenges like growth stagnation, high turnover, or hybrid work staff complications and you think best practices only exist in your organization, you often create barriers instead. Listen as Debra gives great insight into how asking the right questions reveals often overlooked reasons that could help resolve the challenges you face. It can be hard to confront the truth that you don't have all the answers, but God's word gives great examples too of hard questions and the reasons they are important to resolve the challenges at hand.About GuestBeginning her career surrounded by rocket scientists at Martin Marietta (Lockheed Martin), Debra learned very early that talented, smart people need disciplined and structured critical thinking processes to manage the supply chain of information enveloping them. Today, Debra partners with clients at Kepner-Tregoe to remove the “noise” that paralyzes even the best as issues must be identified, problems must be solved permanently, decisions must be made well, and risk must be managed effectively. She is a summa cum laude graduate of Northwest University in Kirkland, WA, with a BA in Organization Management.Support the show

Are you free to be vulnerable with the people with whom you work? If not, what can you do to change that? Learn from Greg as he shares more about coming to faith, again, and how the lessons he learned with The Blue Angels still drives him toward peak performance.Support the show

When we empower others to live out God-given skills and values, there is a ripple of legacy affecting families, coworkers, direct reports, and supervisors.  A small group of people can influence a workplace, homes, and even communities.
