Hey, It's On My Playlist
We can’t listen to whatever we want at work if it offends others; while we do have more freedom to say or do things outside the workplace, we still need to keep in mind that if our behavior offends or discriminates against someone, then it may be grounds for disciplinary action. We all must be respectful of others in the workplace.

Just Give Me Another Three Days
Digitally Remastered! As managers, supervisors and team leaders, there are times when we have to make some pretty tough calls. It just goes with the territory. And when we're faced with those kinds of situations, we have to make sure we don't let short-term gains, like closing a big sale, completing a big project or hitting a production quota, take priority over the long-term integrity of the organization.

Just Tell Them I'm Not Here
Digitally Remastered! You know, one of the things that's easy to forget is that our team members pay attention to every little thing we say and do. Like it or not, we set the example. And when we ask an employee to do something that's questionable—like making up an excuse because we've forgotten something or don't want to deal with someone— it has an impact. It might not seem like much at the time, but all those "little tears" can eventually begin to rip our organization's integrity fabric to pieces. As leaders, we need to hold ourselves and our peers accountable to make sure that doesn't happen.
