How Mature is your Risk Capability?
Risk management is clearly an important factor in ensuring business and project success. But how can an organization tell whether its management of risk is good enough? Maturity models provide a framework to benchmark capability and compare existing approaches with best practice.
The Cranky Parking Attendant
Conflict resolution begins in each one of us. We do not have control over other people’s reaction and attitude. So, when we encounter a difficult person we should respond to them with compassion without expecting anything in return. Everyday we will deal with people with different personalities who is undergoing different situations in life. So next time you encounter a rather “difficult” person, don’t take things personally. Other people’s behavior is rarely about you.
