Friday morning probably isn't the best time to try to get me thinking to that level, but thanks nonetheless. It's thought-provoking, and a good reminder that, to get the best out of people, we should encourage the use of ALL tools at our disposal. Variety is good, so long as it's properly managed, and the benefits can far outweigh the potential risks.

Treat others as you yourself would wish to be treated - a Biblical value that is timeless / cluture independent and works - beats psychobabble any day

Yep, please excuse me: it's Friday afternoon and nearly beer time.

Emotion isn't a bad thing but not knowing when to turn it off can be just as bad as not knowing when to turn it on. We all have opinions but that simple fact doesn't make each one valid or valuable.

In the more social professions (like healthcare, politics, and education), emotions are vital. If you don't have people skills, then you're basically just not qualified for the job.

In professions like engineering, scientific research, and defense, emotions just get in the way. At least that's the case at the lower technical level. Of course every industry has a public facing level, even if only a small percentage of the professionals in that industry are directly involved in it.

The problem I see far too much in the work place today is when someone disagrees with someone else professionally about something involving the work, the other person takes it very personally and then becomes uncooperative and combative from that point on. Sometimes, even trying to sabotage the other person, or their efforts on the job because of it. This kind of juvenile behavior has no place in the work place and I have seen it literally destroy teams and productivity. Not all people are going to agree about everything, that's a fact. But that is also what makes this world so interesting in my opinion. So, please leave the personal vendettas and character assasinations at the door. Calling people belittling names in front of others, or refusing to help someone, simply because they disagree with your point of view and such is not only unprofessional, it is so "junior high" If someone asks you a question you don't know the answer to, just say "I really don't know but I will find out." If someone brings up a point of view you don't agree with, then just say "I beg to differ" and explain your point of view, minus calling the person names like a "troll", for example. In other words, don't get pissed off, combative, and revengeful at the person for bringing up a question or viewpoint that you did not know how to handle. That's not their problem..

Belittling and sabotaging the efforts of co-workers goes beyond insensitivity. Fortunately where I work someone like that wouldn't last long. If one is not part of the solution, then one useless. If one is actually creating new problems, then HR is probably already searching for one's replacement.

I have seen just the opposite occur in many shops, those are the very people that seem to outlast the good people.
