9 Things That Make Good Employees Quit (+ 9 More)

A friend shared a great article on social media recently:

Here are 9 more:

10. They drive wedges between their subordinates, compartmentalizing information and hindering teamwork and communication among them.

11. They ignore the experience and expertise of their employees, and instead treat them like they know little or nothing about the work they actually are quite good at.

12. They place roadblocks in front of employees who strive to innovate and develop solutions.

13. They micromanage and nitpick the enthusiasm right out of their employees.

14. They overcommit themselves to the point of being largely unavailable to their employees.

15. They ignore progress reports from their employees, and then accuse those employees of not getting enough work done.

16. They take advantage of upper management's tendency to protect mid-management at all cost.

17. They don't listen to ideas offered by their own employees, and then later enthusiastically adopt those same ideas when someone outside the team brings them up.

18. They don't accept perspectives and opinions developed over years by their employees, but instead force them to work within constraints dictated by arbitrary research conducted outside the context of the local work environment.

I won't keep going…

Cyberspace Independence

"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather."

That was 20 years ago. Indeed, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Seen Elsewhere

If your reaction to not getting paid enough at your job is to ask the government to force them to pay you more, you're a loser.

REALLY "Feel the Bern!"

The Tax Foundation, an independent tax policy research organization, found that Bernie Sanders’ plan would lead to 10.56% lower after-tax income for all taxpayers, and a 17.91% lower after-tax income for the wealthiest Americans. When accounting for reduced GDP, taxpayers would see their after-tax incomes fall by 12.84% on average.

Supporters of Bernie Sanders might win a few converts if they put their money where their mouths are and voluntarily contribute extra taxes to support Sander’s proposed “freebie” offerings, just to show the rest of us how painless it will be.

Who wants to go first? Write a check out to the US Treasury for that 10.56% and post a pic here!

Obama's 3-Gun Executive Order

#1 - We know this story is NOT real.

#2 - The way things have been going the last few years, it doesn't seem too far away, does it?

#3 - What do you think of the theory that this FAKE STORY was created and published by a government agency and/or contractor as a way to gauge the public's reaction by monitoring social media shares and comments?

#4 - See #1 above, and strive to make sure it never becomes REAL.
