This is an important conversation to listen to the whole way through. First, ask yourself: what’s the highest purpose of your organization?

Requests are not directives — they live in conversation How often do we find ourselves hearing a request, waiting until we walk away from that person, and then say to ourselves, “I have no idea what my boss or colleague is asking me to do?” This universal experience is both comical and frustrating at the same time.
