Margaret Heffernan: Why it's time to forget the pecking order at work - Ted Talk
Organizations are often run according to “the superchicken model,” where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn’t what drives the most high-achieving teams.

Since writing the last post, I have had to come up with definitive language concerning vaccinated guests at an event. The decision was made to say on the invitation "For the safety of all of our guests we are requesting proof of vaccination upon arrival at the theater."
