I love columns that cut to the chase. This one, by consultant Steve Tobak, takes on political correctness. Here is my favorite of his five rules.
Business is about business … period. Every employee serves the company, its customers and its shareholders. That goes for everyone from the CEO and board of directors on down. Work isn’t about you, your personal drama, your generation, how you feel about a federal holiday, or your access to Facebook and Twitter. If everything offends you and you’re not a happy camper, don’t let the door hit you on your way out.
Agreed. We have become a society where people are offended at the drop of a hat. Get over it and do your job.
........As you post your comment, please conform to Right Angles's simple comment policy: we welcome all perspectives, but require that comments be both civil and respectful. If you wouldn't say it to a co-worker in front of your boss, it probably is not civil and respectful. We will delete any comment that fails this test and issue a warning to the poster. A second offense will result in a ban on commenting on this site. In sum, disagreements, arguments even, are welcome; abusive behavior is not. Thanks.
