thinkers, others are doers; some are passive, still others
are aggressive. Most people come to work with pretty good
intentions, but we get on each other’s nerves just by
being ourselves. In the every-day stress of the work
environment, the tiniest issues can escalate. And soon we
are fighting about the way we are fighting, instead of
dealing with the real issues. People do not respond to our
intentions. They respond to our behavior.

for tickets and other win/win ideas. We will also
consider a minimal charge for everyone else, with the
