It’s been an interesting sports week in Philadelphia. Last Sunday, Eagle’s coach Andy Reid benched quarterback Donovan McNabb after the first half. Donavan was playing poorly, but the Eagles were only down 10 to 7. They still had a chance to win the game and keep their slim playoffs hopes alive. Many remain perplexed by the move to yank a former Pro-Bowl quarterback, in favor of a backup with 9 professional snaps to his credit. More disturbing though is the way that Coach Reid handled the situation. McNabb has been the quarterback of the Eagles for the last 10 years.

Someone said to me this morning "there's quite a few stressed people at the moment".
Regardless of how well or badly your organisations are doing at the moment, many many people will have asked themselves the question "could my organisation survive without me?" and answered with "it probably could! what would I do?!" - perhaps not so directly or consciously, but those thoughts and feelings are currently being exercised throughout working populations around the world.
There are so many managers out there that have never coached anyone through a performance issue. Is it because they are such wonderful managers and play to people’s strengths? No, it’s not. There are a lot of employees out there that simply aren’t doing a very good job. Unfortunately they don’t know it. No one tells them. Why? Too busy?
