"I don't think there's any good ..., 14 Feb 2009 [cached]
"I don't think there's any good time to be a drag on the organization that signs your check," said Kathryn Jeffers, my favorite "corporate communicator."
Jeffers, 55, is a writer and trainer at the University of Wisconsin School of Business in Executive Education.
People who succeed, she said, realize their attitudes affect co-workers in multiple directions.
"We ought to be willing to show up every day like it's our job interview," Jeffers said.
This is not the time to be egocentric in any way, she said.
One of our problems, she said, is we become complacent after we get hired.
Jeffers always uses this piece of advice from the Dalai Lama when someone starts to act disrespectful - and she recommends we take it to heart.
