On Your Mark, Get Set, Diagnose!
   by Nathan Strong
In this world of faster and faster companies, the bias
for action is getting stronger. If anything, well-meaning
change agents and managers spring into action too quickly
when performance problems arise. These lightening-fast
interventions can cause new problems while obscuring the
way to real solutions. Nathan Strong calls on us to slow
down and do a thoughtful, thorough diagnosis. His
organizational performance assessment model is an
excellent tool, and it can help you become a great
organizational diagnostician -- as long as you're willing
to take the time.

someone else. Great coaches always know that there is
untapped potential in people, and they create the
conditions that allow it to surface. So what qualities
are essential? Coaching expert Steve Herbelin has four
important answers: competence, personality, empathy,
and integrity.

the least, she's well-qualified to talk about taking on
stress in the workplace!
