Today we are spectators in the ‘business zoo’.

Addressing the elephant in the room is not always easy and many people tend to shy away from it – AND it can completely change the energy, dynamic and quality of collaboration in a team – and by this increase team effectiveness once the controversial or critical issues have been surfaced and solutions jointly initiated.

In the Sladen family we have an inflatable elephant as our companion that we regularly use in workshops and larger events.

When did you recently have a candid conversation in your team that was revealing and what was the outcome?
