August 2004 - Unstuck: A tool for Yourself, Your Team, and Your World
Unstuck is one of the most playful, visually compelling business self-help guides in years. Authors Keith Yamashita and Sandra Spataro believe that just about everybody is stuck in one way or another, and they offer engaging advice on how to get the bubble gum off your shoe. Plenty of real-world scenarios from companies such as 3M, Continental Airlines, and even NASA illustrate first how to cope and then how to prosper.
- Are you stuck? How about your team? If so, describe how and for how long. How has being stuck affected you or your team?
- When reading about the dysfunctions the authors call the Serious Seven, with which did you most identify? Why?
- How many times this week have you agreed to follow the will of your team, even though you didn't agree with it?
- What is one thing you could personally do to shake up people's thinking about new ideas or processes?
