In this episode Stephen and I discuss…

  • How taking on a new role can be a good fit, and sometimes you have to make it your own.
  • The challenges faced after taking on a new role when you bump up against the culture.
  • A role play that can help you get a win-win in a confrontational conversation, and create an opportunity to transform your relationships with those whom you had perceived as adversaries.
