SallyReb A8 so glad I listened in this eve, struggling w this topic and know it is impacting my #productivity #prodchat Thu Aug 25 00:44:49 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith Q9: How do you steer a potentially unproductive relationship into a productive one? #prodchat https://t.co/4FUqzCHQXt Thu Aug 25 00:45:07 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck @TheIdeaPump I really think the paper journal is the best tool in a 1-on-1 situation. #prodchat Thu Aug 25 00:45:10 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @SallyReb It can be so draining. You don’t realize until extreme, but even the aggregate of minor negativity reduces productivity. #prodchat Thu Aug 25 00:45:41 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump @DrFrankBuck Absolutely. There is gravitas when they say something and you pick up your pen to write it down. #prodchat Thu Aug 25 00:46:25 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A9: I try to be non-confrontational but casually address conflict points with constructive opportunities to collaborate. #prodchat Thu Aug 25 00:46:25 +0000 2016
JKatzaman A9 Be empathetic — admittedly not a guy thing — to help resolve the cause of an unproductive relationship. #ProdChat Thu Aug 25 00:47:41 +0000 2016
