When the voters lose

20 11 2015

“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.” ~Winston Churchill

There’s nothing like an upcoming election to make total idiots out of, presumably, reasonable, intelligent, educated human beings.  The events in France over the last week proved that politicians can actually shift the focus of the American people from helping our allies and mourning with them to how much they hate each other.  Our “leaders” are showing us what lengths they’re willing to go to in order to help them move up in the polls instead of reaching out and cooperating against what any sane person would call the common enemy of civilization.

Leaders, take a lesson from this stupidity.  Work is not a democracy, but it is a place where we can all come together to work towards a common goal: our mission.  When you are looking for a promotion, don’t attempt to get it by making your competition look bad.  Don’t back-stab your teammate when you should be giving them a push towards the goal.  Work towards a good outcome for our customers.  While your employees, who ARE watching, may not be voters in the corporate sense, if they’re not going to support you, you’ll still lose.

Speaking of average…
