CHOW – The Challenge of the Week

Challenge of The Week
Welcome to the Chow – the Challenge of the week! This section will highlight some of the challenges we face in our work situations – sometimes bordering on the personal aspects as well. These are situations that may not be classified as black or white. While there could be some good practices and patterns to handle these, the actual resolution will depend on the specific context and the disposition of the person solving the challenge at that time. Over time, with your active participation, we hope that for every situation, we can get a broader perspective of how different people have managed the situation.
Please feel free to
  • share your perspective on how the situation can be approached
  • describe what has worked – and what has not, in your own experience
  • pose your own related or additional challenges to hear from others
The Challenges will usually be open for two weeks before the suggestions from PM Power coaches are published.
