Sample text

As the late corporate quality guru W. Edwards Deming concluded long ago, when fear rears its ugly head, people focus on protecting themselves, not on helping their organizations improve. Edmondson’s research shows that this happens even when lives are at stake. The loathing and dissatisfaction that assholes provoke also has costs in addition to increased turnover.
