Five Reasons Americans Hate Their Jobs, (Here we go again.)

Another report of dubious origin is making headlines today that most (80%) people hate their jobs.  This comes out, interestingly enough, just on the heels of our current Administration, promoting that people really ought to be able to "opt out" of working if they want to, and I suspect that is because the Administration finally realized government doesn't create jobs, except in working for govern...

Quest for Respect May Backfire

One of the greatest causes of conflict in any organization is the issue of respect. We are bombarded by pleas to be respectful of others, or demands for respect, or threats of withholding cooperation if there is no respect. That all sounds so simple, yet it is anything but. The thing that gets in the way of true respect is that many people think that what they do is the foremost skill surrounded ...

How Did They Ever Get This Far?

I agreed to assist a client in screening some resumes he received in response to an ad for a sales rep. We were looking at recent college graduates who were just entering the professional sales marketplace for the first time. I called a young lady who stated her objective was to obtain a position in sales although she had just graduated with a degree with a major in radio and tv. I asked her why ...

Your Expectations Are Too High???? Really????

Would someone please just tell me who in the world thinks lowering expectations is a good idea?  Where does it get you?  What has it done to our country?  Our ambition and achievement? Our independence and freedom?  I am livid at the  the nerve of anyone saying that to someone who has the vision and courage to have high expectations, given what they have to go through to get anything done!
