Breakdowns and Breakthroughs

Embrace Breakdowns!  They are a Breakthrough in the process of forming.

I don’t recall where I first heard this about breakdowns, but it has been a trans-formative experience for me.  As a manager, when staff came to me with a breakdown, my reaction was usually one of anticipation, not admonishment.  For myself, when I had breakdowns, people would say, “Why are you so happy about this?” and of course, I would explain that a breakthrough was in process and I was looking forward to it — and I could usually find it.

So, if this makes sense to you, consider it the next time you encounter a breakdown.
