Comments27/10/2016 #8 Phil Friedman#6 Maria, that is your prerogative. I perceive that you are unthinkingly positive --- which to my mind indicates you do not possess authentic positive energy. Since you have not bothered to read my reply below, please feel free to distribute your "positive" energy to those who will appreciate it more than I. Cheers!27/10/2016 #4 Phil Friedman#3 Thank you, Maria, for reading and commenting. My German is not good enough to answer in detail, but in English this is what I have to reply: I agree that it is a good thing to have positive energy in life. However, to me, positive energy is having the strength to face the negatives of life and keep going in the drive to make things better. Most of the talk on social media about "positive energy" strikes me as insipid and self-delusional. Being brave does not involve never knowing fear, but rather feeling fear yet doing what needs done in spite of that fear. So too, being positive does not involve mindlessly denying the existence of negatives in life, but rather recognizing fully those negatives, yet striving always to make things better. Cheers!

Comments27/10/2016 #1 Albert GibelDear Mr. John Vaughan , Fantastic Post!
Most Americans Are Angry, Scared and Broke!
1970 to 2015 - In just 45-years through political lies, incompetence and greed our elected officials have effectively gutted or allowed to be gutted what was once the greatest nation this earth has ever known. Not only did America lead in manufacturing, aerospace and farming we also lead in research & development, education and healthcare.
• Roughly 76% of the United States or 243-Million American men, women & children live month to month. One-paycheck and 30-days from being homeless.
• More than half our Nation is dependent upon government assistance either through Obama Care or other programs.
• Approximately 50-Million Americans receive Food Stamps or other food assistance.
• The Unemployment and Underemployment Rate remains above 15%.
• More than 10-million jobs have been exported since 1979. Applying an average Job Multiplier of 5 and you quickly realize that in fact 50-million jobs have been lost since 1979.
• Roughly 80-Million Americans remain uninsured or under-insured thereby reducing or denying their ability to seek basic healthcare services.
• America’s infrastructure is collapsing.
• America has maintained a trade deficit since 1971.
• Student Loan Debt exceeds $1.5-Trillion [our children are broke].
• National Debt exceeds $20-Trillion or +-112% of GDP or +-$165,000.00 per tax payer [our Nation is broke].
• There are more than 11.5-Million Illegal Aliens in the U.S.
• More than 250,000 Illegal-Aliens were convicted of crimes last year.
Out of 132 nations the U.S. ranks 70th in healthcare, 69th in ecosystem sustainability, 39th in basic education, 34th in access to water and sanitation and 31st in personal safety. More surprising is the fact that despite being the home country of global tech heavyweights Microsoft, Cisco, IBM, Oracle, and so on, the U.S. ranks a disappointing 23rd in access to the Internet.

If you just want to...
Comments27/10/2016 #7 Franci Eugenia HoffmanGood advice, Renee. I like this statement "Express your understanding of the consequences. Whether your apology is public or private, no apology is worth anything if you cannot express your understanding of why your mistake was such a big deal. Imagine saying you’re sorry but not really understanding why the other party is upset. How sorry are you, then?" Some people feel they can just say "I'm sorry" and be done with it, however, that is not always the cse.27/10/2016 #1 Mohammed A. Jawad@Renée Cormier Well quoted: "The more you attempt to cover things up or twist the truth, the worse you look. In order for your apology to have any impact, you must abandon your ego."
Indeed, lies lead to nowhere, and to be truthful, with humility, is the best policy. When we wish to make an apology, then that means we harbor an impulse for sincere reform. And immediate apologies rank well when there are no sticky arguments from our hearts.

For me it's absolutely 'a way of life'. So I even think "yack - ugh' about the title :-) for me it's too negative. But than again it'll resonate very good and is good "marketing-branding" for all those workers! Great!
Thanks @Lisa Gallagher for sharing!27/10/2016 #5 Harvey LloydThese outward ideas of complaining express the challenges others may experience in your complaining. There is a deeper and more disturbing aspect of those who gain the habit of complaining. Bitterness. This word, like it feels when you say it out loud, infects not just the outside world but deeply harms your ability to see success from your own psyche. These are awesome reminders of facing our day looking forward and contributing.27/10/2016 #3 Mohammed A. JawadWhen we start blaming others and/or list out a set of complaints, then we become forgetful of ourselves, our shortcomings, our own weaknesses. The habit of complaining is no good at all. Instead, when we sprinkle a little perseverance, and ponder over things and hope for the best, then this very feeling makes us cheerful. So, why blame others, and spoil our attitude?27/10/2016 #2 Michele Williams@John White, MBA, Thanks for the infographic. It makes a great tweet.

Comments27/10/2016 #22 Ali Anani#19 ABsolutely stunning your comment is dear @Harvey Lloyd. Your concept of ideas before and after action resonates so strongly with me and leaves me with lots to think about. The value of internal demons shall remain positive and accept the trial and error consequences is ably discussed in your comment. More to discuss on this soon.27/10/2016 #19 Harvey LloydThis is an awesome concept @Ali Anani i would think that a step 1 to this might be the "concept" of success. Emotions are dynamic and changing based on internal and external forces. Ideas are subject to internal forces, in most applications, because we have not yet taken the idea to action. WIthin action, even those who shared your wonder, now can become the triggers to emotional contamination.
What strength will we have when these external forces attack. Although i paint a negative picture of the attack, in reality it is a normal trial and error in the public domain. I have found and i also believe many others have found, when the idea generates from a "service to others" model, our strength emanates from the end goal.
The public domain and its pressing trial and error processes are merely inquiries into the how. If the questions enter the why zone we can answer them through the benefits your success will bring to others.
I believe the attack of a rolling out concept is inevitable. So would should keenly understand our motivations to insure we can sustain the WPD. Internal demons being in control, a prudent review of our motivation/success benefits we can insure no one externally will wake our inner demons.27/10/2016 #18 Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMCLoved this article Ali Anani. And while many statements resonate, for me, the one which resonates most is "We contaminate our emotions with many negative ones such as fear. Fear is what ties up our minds from seeing more possibilities and options". So very true.27/10/2016 #17 debasish majumderWPD, an amazing concept indeed sir @Ali Anani! i guess, content and form are closely related and we reach to a conclusion from its apparent presentation from its form. for example, from a bottle, hardly we comprehend whether it is made up of plastic or glass, which is fragile. but, from our past experience which has been embossed in our brain, later, we realize whether it is made up of plastic or glass and accordingly we handle the object. from the same soil the seed exploits its required elements to manifest its form. so content and form are intricately related. yes, forms wonder us, as your article sir, enabling us to imbibe the rich content you produce. absolutely stunning post sir. thank you very much for sharing the post.27/10/2016 #14 Mohammed SultanDear Ali Anani,PhD.Your wisdom has safely held you as a pattern. It seems that passion as well as love ,had probably been mortified because we value investment in stock market over the investment in our emotion.Our emotion can easily get contaminated when,under the influence of power exercised on us, we accept the unacceptable .Not only this, but also we try make others comfortable,by considering all that had passed as a mere trifle ,and quite unworthy of being dwelt in. To keep and drive our emotion in the green cluster,we sometimes should learn when and how to say NO ,in order to balance emotions with reason.27/10/2016 #9 Deb HelfrichOne word comes to mind as the source of the defeat of the WPD factor. Resistance. We resist because of anxiety, doubt, fear, or just plain overwhelm. And isn't it funny that is what our immune systems do, develop resistance on our behalf to all the microscopic invaders who aren't compatible with our biochemistry.
Fascinating correlation you've uncovered, dear Consortium.
And as I was documenting elsewhere, my background is in HR systems....27/10/2016 #7 Ali Anani#6 First, without the great feedback from you dears @Fatima Williams and @Sara Jacobovici we wouldn't be standing where we are now. I am so happy with your comment and I find it energizing dear Fatima. I look forward to establishing the Consortium Hive tomorrow and to find ways to translate Sara's suggestion and your beautiful ideas into something tangible. You have been a great assist dear Fatima and I hope you shall continue playing this role.27/10/2016 #6 Fatima WilliamsWow Wow and Wow @Ali Anani We contaminate our emotions with trying to please others rather than pleasing our inner drive and doing what affectionate us. This is so true we do this in our jobs , in our daily lives , to please our partners our friends and so on. Why can''t we build this immune system like @Sara Jacobovici suggested. Why are we scared to let go for the sake of ourselves. Why don't we think whats best for us.
This leads me back to your closing statement self-determination. Yes we need that to be our self-defence. To be our savior when all else is leading us in the wrong direction. Our self-determination is the key to our success of the WPD factor. Yet another outstanding buzz from my dear @Ali Anani.
You are the dispersion of light that forms my rainbow , a multi-coloured self determined one and I Thank you for that.27/10/2016 #5 Ali Anani#4 Will establish the hive tomorrow and the triad of yourself, @Fatima Williams and myself are on a new track. I shall do my best to make this hive a different story with you outstanding support. I need to start with a clean mind. @Sara Jacobovici- you have been a mindmate along the way.26/10/2016 #4 Sara Jacobovici#3 Very exciting @Ali Anani! I would be proud to be part of your Consortium Hive. It is your vision of the new approach to the human resources management that needs to go ahead. Yes, much has happened in the last three days with your efforts, energy and capabilities.26/10/2016 #3 Ali Anani#1 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- sheer brilliance your comment is. I think of your suggestion "This leads me to think of building up the "immune system" of a positive formula so as to be able to fight off the negativity". What a breakthrough idea. Do it Sara for you shall serve the humanity. I love your comment, but you got me so aroused with this suggestion that I just want to urge you to go ahead with it. beBee shall be remembered for this. I would even consider establishing a Consortium Hive to assist with this great idea. Just look back three days ago and there was no WPD Factor and where we are today. I see a new approach to the human resources management emerging.

Comments27/10/2016 #17 Harvey Lloyd#15 The generational challenges are merely a language and focus barrier. Onboarding will require something beyond the generational issues. Our beliefs are being redefined through industry advancement, media/politics, regulation and group think. All pretty benign when you consider the individual pieces.
When tied together though some feel they are being left behind, others eliminated from the debate and still others that feel many are cheating. From the individual perspectives we may be understanding, but in the end we all have to move towards a shared alternative. A place where we can all find what we need/want without challenging another's journey.
I don't believe we can ever accomplish this in its entirety, but we can change the fight from each other to this shared alternative debate. One look at our current politics in America and you see that we are certainly not debating the right issues.27/10/2016 #16 Alexandra Galviz#9 Thanks for the comment David. The pill seems easier to swallow when you name it a "right of passage". Prior to getting into full time work I spent my summer doing internships and I learnt so much from those stints in different industries and firms so I would never discount it. I think the traditional career ladder is no longer and whilst there will be agro for those that have not known any different or that 'want in' in the long term that will be the new model.26/10/2016 #10 Wayne YoshidaAlexandria, great to hear your observations. I like this statement: " . . . how are they meant to change if no one is telling them what they’re doing wrong?"
This is exactly like "smoker behavior" -- smoking is such an ingrained habit, smokers don't think there's anything wrong lighting up in a space occupied by non-smokers.
So, like everything else, communication is the key for improving inter-personal relations, at work or at play.
By the way, in my observations, I find I have had more similarities rather than differences when I was a young punk. It will be interesting to see whether or not y'all will change with age and -- experience -- in "the real world."26/10/2016 #9 David B. GrinbergI really enjoyed reading your "sweet honey" in which you make many excellent points, Alexandra. A few thoughts:
1) As a Gen Xer, I recall in my 20s that I job hopped a lot -- and it ultimately paid off by landing a political appointment in the White House for President Clinton at age 23. Prior to that, I had about 5 other short-term gigs during college and thereafter. Thus, it's not unusual at an early age to jump start one's career by leveraging internships, networking and learning from new job opportunities. Anyone who says otherwise is mistaken, at least in my opinion and based on my job experiences back then.
2) I agree with you that Millennials are too often beat up and stereotyped in the media. While this is unfortunate, it might just be a so-called "right of passage" that every new generation goes through when they hit a certain age. During my 20s, I remember Gen X being labeled as lazy, bored and self-interested. This was highlighted by the band Nirvana, which broke into the mainstream in the early 1990s. You might have heard their hit song, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" with a chorus of, "Entertain us!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTWKbfoikeg (video). Then there was the hit movie, "Reality Bites" which further buttressed these stereotypes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bG3EERtO48Y
3) The good news is that Gen Z is up next and Gen Y will be off the hook!26/10/2016 #8 Harvey Lloyd#6 The word change is a big word for boomers. Our definition began in the 60's. Words like grow, or maybe challenge seem a bit less likely to require us giving up an appendage.
We not all that bad either. We just need time to flap our gums about the old days and then we join the team26/10/2016 #7 Randy KehoDon't ever let anyone discount the value of millenials, or any other age-based demographic. We all have value. I enjoy taking newbies under my wing and providing them with a little guidance -- before I kick their ass out of the nest. They don't often appreciate it at the time, but they always thank me for it in the end. #626/10/2016 #6 Alexandra Galviz#5 Thanks for the comment @Harvey Lloyd. I hope we can be the change and I hope we learn from this and ensure that we won't do the same with the next generation to come. This post has been so interesting because from a millennial perspective we don't always know the other side of the story completely, heck we didn't live it! So it's awesome to hear other views and also the understanding rather than rebellion of "urgh just another winging millennial!" Thanks again!26/10/2016 #5 Harvey Lloyd@Alexandra Galviz We were called hippies in the day. Same stereotypical comments and thoughts from our elders, so we get the idea of the stereotype. You might be feeling some jealousy from our generation as we wished we had asked similar questions of our life instead of just rebelling against everything. But change has to start somewhere.
Your generation has a chance to build something awesome. The challenge will always be dealing with the generation behind you and remembering their is another one in front. Boomers fought to get out from under the ones behind. Didn't really pay attention to the one they were creating.
Keep in mind that success to a boomer is: A steady job, house, 1.5 garage, 2.5 children and a retirement plan. Boomers after achieving this pursue dreams. Millennials lead with dreams or goals. Probably a much better system of growth. Unfortunately we gaze through the glasses as described and tend to not take them off. So forgive us and do recognize that we know you will be successful, we are just concerned that your not doing it the way we did.26/10/2016 #3 Randy KehoMuch of the change to the workforce was set in motion years ago. It started when companies began to discount the value of their employees. As a result, there's very little loyalty shared between the two.Twenty years or so ago, the studies showed that Baby Boomers, such as myself, would change jobs every seven years. That's been reduced by more than half of that time frame.
It's neither good nor bad. It is what it is.
However, don't fall for the scam we did. As a result of the move to the 401K retirement-income program, many Baby Boomers lost their proverbial ass when the market crashed, and have not been able to recoup the losses. There's going to be a huge number of people on government assistance in the not-too-distant future. Overnight, they went from looking forward to a comfortable retirement to wondering if they'd eventually join the ranks of the homeless.26/10/2016 #1 Cepee Tabibian@Alexandra Galviz another great post! Loving your contribution to beBee. As one of the elders on the millenial spectrum I think our generation brought and brings a much needed change to the convential workforce.

After years of working in individual offices, meaning having some privacy to think along with the ability to visit other offices, the "open concept" seemed like a barrage of talking and general noise. I don't know who posited the idea that "open concept" meant greater integration. Maybe it works in the IT industry (I think it started in the San Fernando Valley), but it's anathema to working and thinking, as far as I'm concerned. You need to concentrate to do good work, and I saw nothing even approaching "thinking" in "open concept" environments. It doesn't encourage consensus, more it just creates chatter.
