A few months ago Amtrak faced the worst train accident to ever hit the northeast corridor.

 

Though still under NTSB investigation – it is likely that no one single issue caused the crash. It was a sequence of events that lead to the Amtrak disaster, and not all of them occurred onboard the train the day of the accident.

5 Pointers for Getting More from Your Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Managers are taught that holding employees accountable is the key to getting results, yet they often fail to clearly communicate their expectations. Rather than getting frustrated, try these steps: 1. Know what you want first. We may assume others are being thoughtless or selfish when they don’t satisfy our needs, but we haven’t clarified in our own minds what we want. Get clear on this first.

Are You the Role Model for Unhappy Workaholic Employees? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Tony Schwartz, president of The Energy Project, conducted a survey of 19,000 employees in conjunction with the Harvard Business Review.

After selling one of its four planes just to make payroll, the leadership then asked how it could continue to transport the same number of passengers with fewer planes.
