The environment is key. Whether in our brains or in our social networks.
"There is thought to be a genetic predisposition for some conditions, such as Alzheimer's and dementia, but in many cases environmental factors determine whether the disease will manifest," Biergans concluded."

Comments02/10/2016 #81 AnonymousI'm still playing catch up and was on my holidays when this was published, but the points are well made about the differences between ambassador and influencer and the facts about the program, if you really like something you are going to engage and participate in highlighting the product or brand...you only reap what you sow, and the seeds of beBee must be sown far and wide for it to compete and be successful...very well explained @John White, MBA27/09/2016 #76 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador#40 @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD contacted me is taking a break from beBee due to her friend that is extremely ill and other circumstances. Those of you that are close to Mags can reach her on her Twitter account. cc @Pamela 🐝 Williams @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher @Donna-Luisa Eversley @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee "@Paul "Pablo" Croubalian @Deb 🐝 Helfrich @debasish majumder26/09/2016 #73 Lisa 🐝 GallagherThanks for taking the time to write this @John White, MBA, you laid out the facts of the program nicely. We are not influencers and as @Dean Owen noted, we also are not responsible for managing problems people encounter on their posts. Isn't there abuse@beBee.com and support@beBee.com if people have issues? I for one, do not feel I am any better than anyone on this platform and I have much respect for all the bee's I interact with. There are so many wonderfully talented people on beBee and I'm doing today what I've done since I began on this platform- promoting as much as I can because I want to see beBee succeed and it's never been about me. Javier built a great team in Spain first and now with you John, and @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood working hard in the US to help beBee grow, well I see this as a win/win.. as I said, many great people here, yourself included.

Comments13/10/2016 #14 Harvey Lloyd#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.13/10/2016 #13 Joel Anderson#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. :)13/10/2016 #12 Harvey Lloyd@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.)13/10/2016 #11 Joel Anderson#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.13/10/2016 #10 Joel Anderson#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.).13/10/2016 #9 Joel Anderson#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.13/10/2016 #7 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador@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.13/10/2016 #6 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI 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.12/10/2016 #1 Kevin PashukIt 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).

In comments: do an @Name of Bee, a list will drop down, and choose the Bee you want. Some are more difficult. For Instance (sorry Ali, you were the best example) When I want to tag @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I sometimes have to type his name as it appears on his profile (A..I...i...space...A...n...a.. and then he'll show up in the drop down. The reason being, for example, because of someone with the first name Alice. So when I type just Ali, it will show me Alice, or anyone else with a first name that starts A L I. It's only after I add the space and A N that beBee begins to recognize that Ali is the complete first name.
In a Producer Post
if you want to tag someone in the post I'm told you can also use the @ as in a comment, but I've not done this yet. You can link to their profile but I'm not sure if they are notified (@Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín, how does the tag work in the body of the Producer text?

Comments07/10/2016 #38 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsMost 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".

I went to schools in England that had people from all over the world attending them. One of my greatest friends was a girl called Shalahleh Qadir. Her wit, intelligence and knowledge of Islam was truly inspiring. It really gets my goat when people who have not even bothered to read the Koran say that it promotes violence and says that Jesus Christ was just a prophet. I finally got my hands on my own copy of the Koran last year and opened it at random. I got the book of Maryam which is just beautiful.30/01/2017 #207 Claire L Cardwell#206 @Qamar Ali Khan - hope that things resolve themselves quickly with LinkedIn!

The problem with third world countries like us are that theses are not only devoid of material resources but also lack moral and intellectual values. So if a flood ravages the communities and the leaders are compelled by the pressure of public opinion to react to it, they say thanks heavens only a hundered or so people have died and we will take care of them. They can't realize that the death of a single person for a family is like the death of the whole world to them.The developed world or philanthropists could offer money to such communities to mitigate the hardship but to instil moral values and respect for human life in to their mindset is beyond their mandate and would be mis construed...
