3 Questions to Ask Before Your Next Threesome

HR threesomes are trouble.

Someone is always the victim. Too often the regrets are HR’s. So Lauren Moffatt, who still regrets a threesome from years ago, has three (no surprise) questions HR people should ask themselves to avoid a threesome problem:

  1.  Why do I want to say yes?
  2. Have they talked to their supervisor?
  3. Have I told them to have that conversation first?

The threesome problem Moffatt discussed with her DisruptHR audience in Indianapolis last year is all about those meetings where HR plays the rescuer between a manager (the bad guy) and their direct report (the victim).

In her 5 minutes on the stage, Moffatt lays out the problem, describes what happened in that threesome from her past, and leaves you with the kind of advice that will keep you from feeling shamed after your next threesome.
