Back when I had not been writing for very long, I wrote a post called CBS Sunday Morning- HR Style. I’m a huge fan of the show and it is rare that I get to watch it because by the time it comes on, my family is usually awake and the hustle and bustle of the day has begun. I thought of the post today because the show is starting in ten minutes and my house is still quiet. I might actually get to watch it this week.
What I like about the show is it highlights stories from the week in a news magazine style. I learn about a wide array of things, many of which I would never had known about. Back in 2009, I attempted my version by sharing business stories that had caught my attention. Here are a few that I spent time reading this week:
- Sorry I’m Late Boss, My Cat Had the Hiccups– We’ve all heard excuses for being late to work and over 1/3 of managers say they have terminated an employee for being late. These excuses are funny and highly creative.
- The Real Organizational Chart- This article from one of my “must read” blogs caught my eye because every box on the org chart is YOU. If you want to learn how to work as a team and not individuals, this one is for you.
- Ten Rules for Leaders- Look, we all need a good psychologist now and then. I get my fix by reading Incblot blog by Dr. Daniel Crosby. This guest article by Jeff Barnett is just pure good. And he’s a Marine. Share it.
- After 70 Years, Right-to-Work Issue Remains A Hot Potato– What is a week without a little NLRB, unions and right-to-work conversation? Well, this article has all those components so I guess we hit the trifecta!
