Sometimes we get to a point where we are so mentally full and then we walk into a meeting and somebody either tries to dump more responsibility on you or ask you to do something and you just blow up. When somebody in the company thinking negatively and reaches out to anybody that is not their boss and says something negative about their situation, the company, or their boss in any way, shape, or form, that is called cross-lining. In business, negative can only go upline; it can never go side to side and it can certainly never go down. Once the seed is planted and it gets nurtured, it gets spread. All of a sudden, there’s a touch of cancer inside of that organization, and the cancer spreads like wildfire. Cross-lining is one of the biggest killers of business growth. If you catch people cross-lining in your company, you need to stop it immediately.
