« Should you do it? | Main | Comparative Advantage Part II »

15 December 2006


Larry P.

Labor Unions have a great deal to do with keeping - shall we say - "marginal" employees.

This is part of the socialist nature of these labor organizations. There is no incentive to be better and no penalty for being worse. Just as long as you show up to work and have a pulse (and of course pay your union dues) you can have a long career.

Managers at times have their hands tied by these conditions.

Mark Showalter

As managers we may need a third kind of wisdom. A wisdom that allows us to look inward at our own negative behaviors and
the hidden cost they bring to bear on everything. I wonder how much "distraction"
and "re-working" I make for the "good or bad performers" I manage.
