If you ‘ve got a ‘beef’with a co-worker and you work for the New York Times Company, you don’t yell across the room at them, you don’t jet off a scathing memo or e-mail—you put your “moose” on the table.Each New York Times employee gets a stuffed moose for this very purpose. All you need to start a difficult conversation with someone is the courage to bring your moose to the meeting. The moose lands on the table and means, “Let’s talk it out.”
