What is the thing that not only disturbs you but makes you a disturbance ?
[Oswald Chambers]

It is our supposition that unless you are disturbed about something (a person, process, KPI, performance issue, etc.) you will have little incentive to do anyting about it. If it ain't broke you won't try and fix it. And if you can't see a problem (which may be YOU) there is nothing wrong.
