     FEAR BASED 

10 Unmistakable Signs of a Cheap Employer  |  Forbes.com, Liz Ryan                                                      04/27/2017
I think you should run away from Karla and George as fast as your legs will carry you!
Companies that value talent don't have policies like "We start everyone out at a low
salary."  
Unless they've invented a new way to do business that only requires
entry-level employees, that policy makes no sense.


10 Signs They're Looking For A Reason To Fire You  |  Forbes.com, Liz Ryan                                       05/08/2017
Nothing happens in business without a good reason. Your company's leaders moved
you to Operations and saddled you with too much work in order to send you a message.
To them, you are no longer the key player you were before.


10 Unmistakable Signs of a Fear Based Workplace  |  Forbes, Liz Ryan                                                  03/07/2017
I did not know what a fear-based workplace was the first time I started working in one.
At first, I thought the problem was me.  Maybe I didn't have the right clothes or know
the right business jargon. I walked on eggshells at work. I went home anxious and
discouraged every night.  
Gradually it dawned on me that it wasn't just me. My
co-workers were uptight, too. No one was having a good time in our workplace.
What made everyone so nervous and fearful?




      WORKPLACE FRUSTRATION 

         5 Worst Managers To Work For  |  Forbes, Liz Ryan                                                                                          03/09/2017
            
Of course you are hesitant. You don't want to take a job working for someone who
         might subject to abuse like the evil boss you've just escaped from.  
When you start
         interviewing again, pay close attention to the speech, body language and overall
         demeanor of your prospective new boss.


            9 Things that Make Good People Quit  |  Classbanhos.Com
            
Few things are as costly and disruptive as good people walking out the door.
         It’s pretty incredible how often you hear managers complaining about their best
         employees leaving, and they really do have something to complain about — few
         things are as costly and disruptive as good people walking out the door.
         M
anagers tend to blame their turnover problems on everything under the sun,
         while ignoring the crux of the matter: people don’t leave jobs; they leave managers.


            People leave organizations, not managers.  |  Linkedin, Mario D. Kyriakides, MA, SHRM-SCP                      04/20/2017
            We have all heard it, "people don’t leave organizations, they leave managers." The
         problem is I am not so sure it’s true. I realize it's a fairly big leap to challenge great
         researchers like Marcus Buckingham or the Gallup organization, but the research
         simply is not my experience and my guess is that it isn't your experience either.
                   
"Great organizations, develop great policies and practices,
                    that empower great leaders, to lead great teams.

            Why Your Employees are Leaving  |  Style and Design, Renee Sylvestre-Williams                                              01/30/2012
         
One day when I was out getting a coffee, I overheard a man talking on his cellphone.
         
"We need to be stricter with our hiring practices next year," he said. "We want to keep
         them past a year."  
I wanted to turn around and tell him, "Maybe you don't need to be
         stricter with your hiring practices. You can bring them in but you're not keeping them.
         It could be your corporate culture."




      WORKPLACE VIOLENCE 

6 Responses For Working Through Workplace Conflict With Tact And Finesse
                                                                              
|  Linkedin, Dr. Martina Carroll-Garrison                     03/08/2017
When was the last time you heard the comment “I love everything about my job, except
for the people I have to work with”? Let’s be honest – we have all heard it, and maybe
even said it ourselves on more than one occasion. It is without a doubt the interpersonal
skills that we bring to work every day that can make the difference in how we relate to
people and how they relate to us – hence our effective interpersonal contribute to
diminished workplace conflict.




      You're Fired! 

Fired? There's Nothing to be Ashamed of  |  LinkedIn, Lauri Hennessey                                                       05/07/2017 
It's funny, how certain things in society are still taboo. In our social media world, we are
more transparent than some people (this includes my husband) think we need to be. We
talk, we process, we learn, we share. But there's one thing we still don't talk much about.
What do you when you are fired?
