Yes, while I understand that sometimes teams need to be dispersed and all over the world… when (as a consultant), I’m privy to the dysfunctions of a current system… well… things need to be changed.
The saddest part about seeing this conversation happen is the fact that:

- They have been disenfranchised for a long time… some are near apathy
Don’t do this.
