Business Leadership Lesson #42: How to Turn Workplace Explosion into Workplace Performance

Good morning Leigh

I’ve been thinking about this all weekend…

When I was thinking about what happened last week I keep getting the image of ‘Red Adair’ in my head..
You may remember Red Adair. He was  a legend at fixing oil wells and gas platforms that were on fire.

This is what Wikipedia says about him:

Paul Neal “Red” Adair (June 18, 1915 – August 7, 2004) was an American oil well firefighter. He became world notable as an innovator in the highly specialized and extremely hazardous profession of extinguishing and capping blazing, erupting oil well blowouts, both land-based and offshore.

Over the past few weeks clients have asked me to go into several sales teams that were ‘extremely hazardous..blazing..erupting..’ with issues, challenges, walk outs and disaster.
