My google stats have been telling an interesting story. The most common search strings over the last few weeks have been:
#1: "Employees with Bad Attitudes" - which leads to this post by the same name.
And #2: "Managing up" - which leads to this post.
So why is it that so many people are seeking help on how to deal with attitude issues? Are we all a bit grumpy? Has economic instability left us feeling inflexible or vulnerable? Or are we just sick of adults who act like children? And why are so many looking for help on how to deal with their bosses?
Do you see the linkages between these two topics? It's all about how people act and get along.
And I have noticed that a lot of bloggers are writing about bad bosses today. Must be a theme.
What's going on? Are we lacking in basic civility? Can't we all just get along?
Follow along: "I have a dream." "All we need is love." "You're so beautiful to me." "Don't worry, be happy."
