      Thanks George,

      I was about to suggest that Naresh, and anyone else with a similar
      dilemma, might want to consider talking to Esther or me about our
      workshop, "The Secrets of Agile Teamwork: Beyond Technical Skills."

      As it turns out, the real secrets lie in these thorny interpersonal
      areas. We have a workshop coming up in December that is open to the
      public, and we're taking registrations now. In addition, many
      organizations have brought us on-site to work with their Agile/XP teams.

      Either Esther or I would be happy to talk with you about what might
      work as a place to start, Naresh.

      Diana
