    It's a given, and an understatement, to say that our businesses needs customers to keep going. We have lots of expenses, not the least of which is payroll. If you’re ever in a situation where you find yourself chasing after business in order to pay the bills, you'd certainly not be the first, nor will you be the last. There's a difference, however, between that scenario and those who chase to get business even when they’re not desperate for cash flow.

    Chasing means you’re more likely to be used. You could end up being a means to an end. Prospects (or former clients you're trying to win back) may see you as easy-come easy-go. They either suck you dry or they might allow you to court them only to use you as leverage against another offer . . . and you don't get the sale. If you do get it, the client doesn’t respect you, which makes everything difficult. They end up questioning every decision. They may not even trust you entirely or your recommendations. This makes working together difficult.

    If you chase and then allow someone to take advantage of you, you’re sending the message that you’re disposable. Right from the start, failure is almost guaranteed.

    I don't think people realize the importance of a good handshake when, in fact, it does contribute to "first impressions." In the span of a few seconds we lay the foundation for how others perceive and feel about us – and we about them. Our handshake actually reflects certain personality characteristics.

    In Amy Vanderbilt’s Complete Book of Etiquette (1957), she writes that: "A handshake is as much a part of personality as the way we walk, and although we may modify and improve a poor handshake if someone calls our attention to it, it will still usually be just like us, assured or timid, warm or cool." I agree with that 100%.

    Like most big, bad, scary things, bankruptcy has a reputation based on a few tidbits of truth and lots of embellishment. There are many misconceptions—that everyone will know you've filed; that all your debts will be wiped out; that you'll lose everything you have; that you'll never get credit again; that only deadbeats file for bankruptcy; and many more. Certainly, filing for bankruptcy shouldn't be taken lightly; it's a difficult, emotional situation. But it's there to help you find financial peace and help you get back on your feet.

    There is no shame in filing bankruptcy. If anything, debtors should feel proud they had the guts to face the reality of their situation and file bankruptcy so they can get a fresh financial start.

    Companies that reject flex-hours are a bit of an anachronism, much like publishers still demanding manuscripts be sent by hard copy (with self-addressed envelopes). As a freelancer for 25 years, I only dealt with one client (agency) requiring me be on site every day (the president didn't trust anyone). Trust is really the issue here. If you're insisting that everyone be on-site, working traditional hours, etc., you actually lose something in the process. Good thinkers are working around the clock. They construct ideas, notions, strategies even in the shower. Imagine going from this environment to being forced into an office (and a cubicle) each day. The noise is deafening and so much time is wasted with chatter and silly "requirements." If Gates is serious (Microsoft still requires staff to be on site), he should show by example how effective letting people work in their own environments (on their own hours) can be. My best working time is 4:00 am. Between then and 9 o'clock, I accomplish more than a week in an agency. Thanks for the post @Juan Imaz. Very interesting.

    Juan, I also want to add per point #6 that studies and anecdotal evidence show that more Millennials view work autonomy as a non-negotiable job criteria. Moreover, Millennial workers are in high demand and will soon comprise the majority of the global workforce compared to other age groups, especially as Baby Boomers and GenXers increasingly retire. I also assume that Gen Z -- the younger cohort of Millennials -- will also demand flexible work options as a prerequisite for considering any job offer. Although most members of Gen Z are still in high school, the oldest members of this demographic are starting to graduate college and embark on their first professional jobs. Therefore, flex work is a major incentive to them as well.
    Thus, it's important for employers to recognize why flex work makes good business sense from the standpoint of recruiting, hiring and retaining the best available talent, particularly among a new generation of young people. Employers who ignore flex work options do so at their peril, as talented applicants will be hired by the competition. On the employee side, it's critically important to remember that with increased work autonomy comes increased accountability and trust by management.
    Thanks again, Juan, for a terrific and timely read. FYI - here's another buzz I wrote about an emerging flex work management model: Results-Only Work Environments (ROWE) https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/new-work-paradigm-for-millennials-gen-z-is-results-only

    Kudos, Juan, on another brilliant buzz full of important insights and astute advice. I've been a long-time proponent of work flexibility because, put simply, it just makes good business sense in today's fast-evolving mobile, digital and virtual high-tech workplace.
    Thus, I hope employers take note of the business benefits you point out of allowing flexible work options for employees -- which, as you note above, increases engagement, productivity, morale, job satisfaction, and company loyalty (among other things).

    Quite frankly this is at the heart of why most people, including myself, would chose to work for a start-up. After having run a company that operated for 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, I wanted a job that afforded me the time-space to be creative in way that was better for me. A traditional CEO role at a traditional company would simply have me in the same grind I left when I sold my business. beBee offices are in a Wework in New York which is filed with start ups. The flexibility of work hours can be seen on the faces of people walking around there. They are happy, they socialize more and just seem way more creative.

    I am glad that this buzz leads with the word "Workers' and not "Employees". Workers should denote those people who do the work. That is not necessarily true with the word "employees" when it means being employed under someone else's dime. Employees are pampered in large organizations but workers still do the work.

    The next key word is agile. Agile works when the workers an organization hires are really good, they know how to do the job and the organization has headhunted the best of the best - so why then would an organization stand in their way and create rules that impeded and get in the way of their job. If you hire the best, let them work and here flexible hours are intelligent hours. It is a win-win - a worker that wants to work and wants to flourish using abilities and gaining new abilities.

    The reason organizations with bloated HR need to create policies is because not all organizations can command the best minds, so an organization hires B-Players or what Steve Jobs called BOZO LEADERSHIP and the whole organization is then either dumbed down or policy driven because the policy is to protect the organization from bad workers. This is when comedies like Office Place find their material for "TPS Reports" and having these "Lumbergs" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fy3rjQGc6lA In this case flexible work is a crazy idea - to give people who are experts at playing the game, the opportunity to game flexible time - not good.

    Bottom dollar, hire really good people, get out of the way unless they ask for development and then work on a win-win basis, but hire a good person and throw them into an "employee culture" and expect the good person to be the one who is burned. So if your organization needs to downsize, do not call me - I have become very tired watching over decades, this kind of BS. Flexible work is not BS but it needs to stay clear of BS in order to create a win-win scenario.

    Thank you @Juan Imaz for sharing your excellent approach to enlight the flexibilty's prism. I like very much the idea like compensating differentials to steer the work efficiency needs, targeted. That can be an entire package of well-being in corporate life, to reduce the paradox of the risk intermingling between work and family life, if strict boundaries can be set and shared both sides.

    From your lips to God's ears, @Javier. Perhaps it's my locations -- New York and LA -- but they're towns in which, as Leo Durocher observed, nice guys finish last.

    In the Big Apple, people were unafraid to be blatantly unpleasant. In Los Angeles, they're more conscientious about appearances. Or, as a friend asked me when I first arrived, "Do you know how to say f**k you in Hollywood?"
    "No," I said.
    "It's 'Trust me.'"

    Though those characteristics haven't hardened me, made me willfully unpleasant, inconsiderate, or rude, they're a palpable presence. Or, to steal a line from a movie, which seems appropriate in Tinsel Town, "This is reality, Greg."

    So, while I embody your guidelines in my own interactions, it's rare to find reciprocating souls inside the city limits. Pity.
