    King/Queen for a day!
    King/Queen for a day!I recently saw a post that talked about the Emperor’s New Clothes. Oh how I love this story. I used to refer to it a lot back in the day. Actually, I still do. Sir/Mam You look marvelous but I think you may want me to tell you that you don’t...

    #13 I hated the events and the subsequent live through that happened. But at my age i am realizing folks like that showed me more about myself than i learned about them. If nothing else i learned how to piss them off from a safe distance. When i read about the characteristics of the various winning and losing positions, they came alive through people. I could see and watch the impact of Win-Lose within groups. Unfortunately i also was able to recognize how i had practiced this process in my own life.

    Again i thoroughly enjoyed your read, @Joel Anderson. These tales demonstrate to me that life is a shovel of fertilizer and we need to learn how to plant and grow things in it.

    #12 Thanks for the insights @Harvey Lloyd I will take a look at the books you mention. I remain committed to a life long approach of learning and finding both good and bad examples outside of the personal experience domain. It is always good to keep an open mind and gain and learn from each experience. Nitwit indeed. And yes, with a little understanding of the practice of Win-WIn/Win-Lose or Lose-Win, he remains a poster child of win-lose and all about me-isms. It is kind of like the cast in Monte Python's The Holy grail when confronting these killer rabbits in our lives, back then unfortunately I just didn't have the luxury to "run away." I guess in hindsight, tis and twas "but only a flesh wound." Keep clapping and clopping those coconuts I will and know that I wish only the best to you and all the rest who experience toxic leadership. Why, because as Annie would say, the sun'll come up tomorrow. On that final note and just as an aside, years later one of my folks was having an exceptionally bad day. He worked in an office of 37 other very smart people. As I walked by him, it was obvious that he was distressed. I simply stopped by his desk, asked him what was wrong and then busted out in my best rendition of the song. It was humorous to watch the heads pop up from behind the cubicles and probably more impressive as everyone in that room started singing along with me. Not sure if I did much to solve his angst, but the smile on his face was classic. :)

    @Joel Anderson your post was not long but intriguing. Anything that is intriguing has to lay down the groundwork. I must say that during these career episodes it is not funny and to some degree depressing. But forgive me if i laughed at the circumstances with you. You and others who have experienced these events have helped me understand that i am not totally outside of reality when i say, What a nitwit leader!

    Disrupted by Dan Lyons is a book i recently read that chronicles your story and many others in this crazy world. It's a entertaining read. Like your story, you keep waiting for the person to say. I woke up and it was all a bad dream. Unfortunately the authors were awake.

    I would offer up the discussion Steven Covey or Roger Dawson had in their respective books. The idea of practicing, Win-WIn/Win-Lose or Lose-Win. I would state that the leader you encountered was practicing win-lose. I usually run from these folks. Their theory is that they have to see you lose in order for them to win. When you call them out, they will only make you lose larger.

    I found these perspectives to help when engaging new relationships, personal or professional. (Lose-Win is always being the victim.)

    #l Thanks @Pascal Derrien "All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent. Edmund Burke

    It is kind of ironic that I focused so much on this nut cases commitment couch. About a month ago, I bumped into a colleague and his wife at one of the local stores. What were they doing? Looking at couches. It must have sparked something now that I think about it. Since the time of this story, I have annoyed the pea waddens out of my wife. When it has been time to go look at and get another couch I refuse to participate. Get me to go look at chairs recliners, end tables, lamps--I am a more than happy participant. Couches, I have just walked away. She knows why but she keeps trying to tell me it is irrational. Maybe I am superstitious? I think I may just be able to cross over that threshold now. :)

    All the best and keep making a difference.

    #7 #8 Aside from the therapeutic nature of this post for me, I think I just may have had one of those moments. Here I am sitting in the dark, drinking my coffee and waiting for the sunrise. Now on my second cup, there is the beginning of early morning nautical twilight on the horizon and I just had a thought. Here i am in the dark, but soon I will be in the fall sunlight. This dude, and others like him rarely see the light around them because the perceive an aura emanating from and around them. They generally don't grab a clue until they are out the door (usually on a bad note.).

    #6 Thanks @Deb Helfrich It is unfortunate indeed. We live, we learn, we grow from each experience. Despite it all, all we can do is to endeavor to recognize those who behave this way for who and what they are, and deal with it accordingly. The human dimension of the work place to me is what is the important thing.

    @Joel Anderson, I agree with @Gert Scholtz - no need to shorten this as it is perfect as is. Plus, I can relate to this because I had a manager like this. I was not alone in my feelings he was the manager from hell. Before his meetings we had paperwork and after his meetings, the same and while traveling, the same. I had two managers at one time and he informed me he didn't give a crap about my other manager, he wanted his reports completed. Our reports were never used for the benefit of the company, only for his ego. He thought he had an in with the upper management but found he only had an out, which was out the door. This is a very enjoyable article.

    I wish I didn't have similar experiences, but, alas, I did. But the humor of reading through your time as this guy's court jester was amusing from the remove of hindsight. It just bugs me the very real human toll of people trying to do a good job who are getting derailed by naked emperors.

    It goes to show you Joel, that everyone serves a useful purpose, even if it is being a great example of a bad example.

    I wouldn't be so quick to discard your 'piss and vinegar'... Channeling it for good can be incredibly constructive for an organization. There's a big difference between an effluent agitator (good) and shit disturber (bad).

    #29 @Pamela L. Williams: I mentioned it below but it didn't get noticed...we both wrote on this same topic on the same day! Perhaps, @debasish majumder, boxes of bees were dropped off at two different places on the same day! I wonder how often this happens - and our two articles really don't have overlap - that is statistically significant.

    #26 I read about the honey production in India. It does have a very beneficial side; bee populations are growing. If you have heard about Colony Collapse Disorder then you know that most of the world is seeing declines in bee populations. India could become the bee/honey capital of the world :-)

    your lovely insight instigate to ponder an alarming issue being prominent in my country, India, where bees are being dispensed from one region to other region in boxes where they can introduce the business of honey and make sizable profit, keeping the peoples economy at stake who are traditionally engaged in honey exporting business. besides, shifting of honey business by transporting bees are directly affecting the overall agricultural economy of the concern place, as the cross pollination and pollination by bees will be inevitably affect the other agricultural produces. so, i guess, being intoducing by number of do's and don'ts will intimidate the new bees to produce buzzes.

    07/10/2016 #38 Pamela L. Williams
    Most excellent post Gert. Affinitize! I like that word and it speaks to how we Buzz around the hives and interact with our fellow bees. This provides simple guidance on what is entailed in being part of the community; which is no more than engaging and becoming acquainted with like minded people with whom you share a common bond. It also changes how many view professional engagement, by being personal. I think of the old line "It's not personal, it's business". But, as Meg Ryan said in the movie You've Got Mail,
    "Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal".

    @Rebecca Brockway, LinkedIn is an advocate of false professional ethic.It is a single-mindedness. This new trend in a way represents a generalization and somehow discrediting the human need for creative self expression, including armpit. Different things represent pleasure for different people. I certainly think that any kind of generalization is not good, if not rather dangerous. I used to say: People are not products. People are much deeper than stereotypes.

    @Rebecca Brockway ... where do I start.. Love your arms - and armpits, if I showed mines someone may have a heart attack ( hahaha - kidding on the heart attack!) You sure rock and at any age you will. It is the essence of who you are which shines through your photo. You are enjoying the freedom age now provides and why shouldn't you. Your smile and glow tell the story reflected in your eyes. Sometimes folks are insecure in their own images and self and reflect this on what they see in others. There was a time many years ago, I felt the perfect standard photo was the one to be shared, but threw that thought out when I turned forty... hahaha, now everyone gets to see me. It is sad that some folks won't get to experience the freedom of enjoying a beautiful self - but that's something they need to figure out.
    Looking out for your stories, because I'm approaching fifty in a few years and once I'm around the world will need to get ready for me!

    #34 Perhaps we are not pure honey bees, after all. Maybe we're a new hybrid with bumble bees, which have less toxic stings, vand their stings don't kill the bee who did the stinging, either. I say hybrid, because we still produce honey.

    #14 When a honey bee stings a person, it cannot pull the barbed stinger back out. It leaves behind not only the stinger, but also part of its abdomen and digestive tract, plus muscles and nerves. This massive abdominal rupture kills the honey bee. Honey bees are the only species of bees to die after stinging.

    Hey! @Juan Imaz ! ,or Señor Juan Bee, as Bo Buzzbee so respectfully refers to you. Bo wants you to know that although it flies in the face of what he originally had been using his stinger for, he now concedes that it's a lot more fun dispensing joy from that pointy little digit on the end of his hind end than meting out pain. So he's updated his Unofficial Guide to beBee Jargon to reflect this fact, as well as the definition of a Venom Sack. He said he figured you'd bee delighted when you heard about the update!

    @Mark Hewitt let me propose what I call the "Black Hole" approach. Let me explain.

    Black holes are astronomical phenomena that can't be seen by the naked eye, even current technology. In the pure absence of light they're invisible--duh! Still, how do astronomers know they exist? The prevailing theory is that they exist because the effects that their strong gravitational pull has on surrounding heavenly bodies. So, astronomers peer into the heavens and keep finding clusters of stars being gobbled up in vortex fashion by unseen forces in the center--black holes!

    Carrying this analogy forward...beBee can become the social media version of a black hole. Perhaps not seen directly, but its presence is absolutely felt, it is here to stay, due to the effects it has on competitive social channels that share the social media commons, similar orbits...they draw members away from rivals into the vortex of beBee's core organizing principle of affinity networking--its gravity for attracting new members.

    For me, reasoning, understanding is amplified by clever use of analogies and metaphors. Thus, this analogy helps me better understand how beBee can model nature to become a force to reckon with.

    we are always comparing (me too) beBee with LinkedIn, but I think the key to success of beBee is not to become an improved release of any other existing RRSS but develope its potencial to create its own brand.
    In my opinion, the goal shouldn't be moving users from Twitter or LinkedIn to join beBee, by doing the same and in the same way promoted by others RRSS. beBee has to work in creating the feeling that beBee is unique, the most innovative network platform which is breaking the mould in social networking.

    #30 OK, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian If your point is that being offended is a CHOICE, then that's a hugely important point for personal health. Where I have a problem with what you wrote is "what we should be offended by". There is no should in this land. Should is part of imposing one's will and judgment on another, and while we all do it, and I do it, it's a dicey thing to determine what a person SHOULD be offended by, and not. Often that is used as THE excuse when translated into "you are being too sensitive" which is clearly judgmental, even if it is true in one person's opinion.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    29/08/2016 #30 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #29 True, many abusers hide behind the "But, that's not what I meant," excuse. What I mean is that there is a difference between what we CHOOSE to be offended by and what we SHOULD be offended by. The difference is difficult to explain, but easy enough to see. Writers have a responsibility to write what they mean. Readers have a responsibility to grow a little thicker skin. There is too much, "I don't agree so I'm offended," going on in social media.

    You didn't agree, Robert, but no one can say you were offensive about it.
    Robert Bacal
    29/08/2016 #29 Robert Bacal
    #27 @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian I think I disagree. Something can be offensive, and be predictably so, EVEN IF THE SPEAKER/WRITER attends no attack or offense. See https://www.bebee.com/producer/@robert-bacal/the-subtleties-of-verbal-abuse-and-we-all-do-some-of-them for more. You are probably aware that abuse, physical or otherwise is often excused as unintentional, and it's often the excuse of batterers in domestic violence.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    29/08/2016 #27 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #22 Just to be clear, I am of the opinion that MOST offense is simply interpreted as such. SOME offense is obviously deliberate. There is a difference but it is difficult to define. Like pornography vs. nude art, you recognize it when you see it.

    Sometimes, you just need to take another look after you cool off. If it still pisses you off...

    Hi Phil. Thanks for your contribution. It also makes me think of the old saying; "Let's agree to disagree" Agreement is not easily to get when you have more than one person around. I guess that's where the idea of voting came from. I guess a law professional would have a lot to say about the power of agreement. But true character is shown in moments of disagreement. How many friendships have been broken over silly disagreements. This is where emotional intelligence helps a lot, also being self aware. There are times when we do have the power just to bite our tongues and carry on. #22

    @Nicholas Fester - It's interesting that you say you feel offended maybe twenty times a day, but choose not to say anything. I have to say I think that is good choice, for as @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian View more
    @Nicholas Fester - It's interesting that you say you feel offended maybe twenty times a day, but choose not to say anything. I have to say I think that is good choice, for as @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian points out, taking offense to something is an act that is within one's internal control. Personally, rarely, if ever am I "offended" by something someone says. But I do sometimes strongly disagree with statements that are made. And in such cases will express such disagreement. For I believe that people who write and read, yet pass only pat's and strokes back and forth, are talking AT one another, not engaging in conversation. Without question, that is each person's personal prerogative. But if you and others reach beyond that personal choice, and seek to quell any and all politely-expressed dissenting comment by creating a culture of repression (albeit cloaked as gentle concern for the sensitivities of others), then I do I, indeed, object to that, whether you like it or not. Perhaps, there should be a "sticker" to use at the top of a post that says, "Warning: the Author of this post neither invites, nor accepts disagreement in any form. If you're not prepared to post a positive comment, don't bother reading this." This is not to say that I in any way endorse personal attacks or abusive language. But to fail to distinguish between that and civil disagreement seems to me an increasingly common, and ultimately pernicious failure. Cheers! Close

Thankfully I (still) find it very congenial in here...as cosy and welcoming, as inspiring and informative, as intellectually stimulating and challenging as it was on day one. So it is with happy anticipation always that I log in a few hundred times a day ;) beBee is more about thinking and communicating than showing off skills and attitudes. And the daily new influx of mind-boggling talent and professionalism is inspiring, to say the least! Being personal here means being more open, transparent and honest about oneself; and being professional means being more sharing, more interactive and more engaging with peers and peer groups and those who you befriend along the way. those are the two sides and together, the differentiator. Let me read your buzz again and cackle a wee bit more :)

However, there are some comments and/or posts that suggest some abhorent things. I have to say, I haven't seen any on beBee to date. And, even if I did I would either ignore, or report. I really like @Pamela L. Williams take on saying things nice.Another that always sticks with me is, "If you can't do it/say it with love then, don't do/say it at all. Thank you for the post.

    @Nicholas Fester, a MOST EXCELLENT post! I try to live by the adage; if you can't say something nice, then shut up! That doesn't mean we all have to agree. I like a good debate, but it can be done with civility. I admire people that can word there comments in a way that leaves no doubt they disagree but they do it in a way that you can't help but appreciate their words. I recently came across such a comment and was compelled to email the person and tell them how much I appreciated and enjoyed the comment. I do not call myself a Christian but I was raised in large part by a Christian minister (my grandfather). It was he that taught me tolerance for other's beliefs. He had strong convictions in his own beliefs and also said this: We live the best life we can, stand by our convictions, and when the day comes and I stand before my Lord, I'll know what or who was right. We must live in our truth, but everyone has their own truth.

    Personally, I can't name two people of faith that believe everything exactly alike.
    When it's all said and done; one day we'll either know the full truth or we won't. Until then, I let other's have their truth and all I can do is try to relate.

    I am a Christian Doctor bee but don't sting me for either one (does that make me a 'double-bee?'): Sharing to Hives: "Emergency Room" and "Dr Margaret Aranda: For NewBeeZ" (great for those new here & "Welcome!") and "Invisible Illnesses" as many of my recruits will be disabled or will have suffered aplenty. Just food for medical though: when someone gets an allergic reaction to a bee sting, the need for an EpiPen®️ is due to rapid swelling of the lips, tongue, and vocal cords, which are likely to cause suffocation. If the patient can't swallow due to vocal cord swelling, this is a harbinger of badness to follow. So act quick, and call 911 (USA) or 011 (UK) before you think it is necessary. This same reaction occurs when children, for example, have an anaphylactic reaction to eating peanuts. Get the children to the ER faster, as their airways and little bodies are extremely fragile when it comes to airway rescue. Thank you.

    Is Rudeness Costing Your Company Revenue?
    Is Rudeness Costing Your Company Revenue?We have all had our encounters with rude people – they butt in line in front of you or cut you off on the highway, they pop you the special finger saying you are number one, and they interrupt conversations – should I go on? The big question is –...

    #14 You are certainly right. It even worst went such associates have connection with upper management. All the hand picking.

    @Erroll -EL- Warner - that's so true - I know though, that some people are just crabby and rude - all the time and no one can ever break their shell. In my experience, when I had rude co-workers - they had a reputation of being rude and people could not change them. People do not like confrontation - so they would say and do nothing. In these cases, upper management didn't understand or care that there was a problem. So good employee after employee would quit to get away from these rude people, especially because rudeness was accompanied by other negative traits as well.

    When people including associates are rude just "shower" them with kindness. Going to the donut shop next door on a break ask them if they need you to purchase something for them. Oh!, how quick they are to say "NO"!. It takes two to build an argument. When associates smile with other customers and fellow associates those with the "attitude" get angry because they keep wondering how come that person constant being so nice. The lady refused your invitation or conversation because there is a serious employee problem. It could relate to micro managing and other awful treatment. She would never like other people and customers to heard about it.

    #11 The Secrets of Power Negotiating is Roger Dawson's series. When it comes to employees and being rude to customers......I find that rudeness knows no boundaries. Rude folks do believe in equal rights, they are generally rude to everyone. Employees who are rude within the office I know are rude to customers. Rudeness in the office is met with a separate and swift action outside of whatever is being discussed.

    We often ask customers for feedback on our communications with them and have had to let some folks go based on feedback. But like you I have my limits of rudeness. Situational rudeness is where I will practice, my button is when you make it personal. Personal attacks by lumping me in with the call centers that call all hours of the night can become a battlefield. That's usually when the not so nice active listening skills come out.

    Well said @Harvey Lloyd - listening is key - for example, when someone is rushed, I use tactics like asking if there is a better time to call them back so I am respectful of their time. And yes, I too try to see if I can win them over or calm them down - but, as you have probably experienced, there are always the challenging characters that push my limits on my ability to engage in pleasant conversation. At the same time, rudeness to me is unacceptable - and I would be personally embarrassed if one my staff was rude to anyone. Companies need to be aware of how someone, in a position like answering phones, which is most times a first interaction with an organization, can truly make or break their business. And thanks for mentioning Rodger Dawson, I'll have to check him out. :-) #10

    @Jennifer Schultz The Golden Rule always applies. Sounds like you applied it well. I would offer up that rude people offer us an opportunity to hone our active listening skill sets. These skills in sales or other styles of negotiations are so important to success. Most of the time we are learning on the job, where risk is high. When given the opportunity in a low to no risk situation, using active listening skills gives us immediate feedback of technique.

    Reflective language is a part of the process and I try to use it in low risk settings to see if I can win the person over or calm them down. Also rudeness sets us back on our heels in negotiations. Practicing active listening in low risk settings stops the rudeness from knocking us back. Especially when the negotiations have a large meaning to your success.

    Rodger Dawson, a negotiations expert, stated that rudeness in the opening gambit should be treated as an interesting first position. Merely a perspective that allows us to turn our skills on and not push us back on our heels.

    I would like to say I do this every time, but not. I usually do what you accomplished and not meet rude with rude. Unfortunately though I am human and try and out preform the rudeness on occasions.

    You have no reason to feel guilty - you sold a solution to help companies - but, them instilling good human touch should be part of their training processes.

    #7 I feel a bit guilty. In 1996 I was one of the salespeople selling Call Centers and Campaign Managment Software and such. Voice over IP etc. all of that just began. Customer service changed. Now that agents get controlled, spied on - they don´t get measured on customer happiness. They only get in trouble if they didn´t say Mam 7 times and "did you know we offer ..... " . Companies who have "free" agents are so much more effective. The working conditions in most call centers are horrible.

    I know @Aurorasa Sima - I think companies get very disengaged with their business - and it doesn't seem to matter whether they are big or small. It's funny I was always taught the customer is always right even when they are wrong. That might be old school - but, it is something that I still follow. It's about serving people no matter what size or type of business. So many business owners look at their P&L and blame losses on other reasons. #6

    I don´t understand why so many don´t get it. Winning a new customer is expensive. Winning back a lost customer is very, very, expensive. Customer retention is established by after sales and customer service.

Add to the ad if you wish to, like the blurb here. Do something cool with your name.
