I have spent half of my life managing fires. I mean, I put them out. In the world of being a fire fighter, that’s pretty simple. You put water on the hot red stuff. But later in my career I found out that fighting fire wasn’t what was going on most of the time. What was it? Managing the fires inside the fire house.
Now consider that every workplace is a fire house. That is, people go there, have a common goal, spend tons of time with each other, and must complete a task. Now, also consider that each fire house has its own unique dynamic or culture. This is the fire that must be controlled.
