"And" may be one of the most important words in the workplace. You and your boss. You and your peers. You and your goals and expectations.
Its importance is heightened because of our tendency to treat conduct as if it were in a test tube. We are reluctant to explore the addition of new ingredients and tend to throw responsibility back on the individuals.
But when we are up in the middle of the night, tending to our stomach acid, it is often our relationships that are the cause. We grapple with the question of "and."
Why look past it?
