Corporate distraction!

If you haven’t seen any of the new Weird Al Yankovic videos you are missing out on some good stuff. My favorite now is the one called mission statement, you can watch it below. In this video they list out many of the buzz words I have heard in many of the jobs I have held over the years. Company leadership love to hold meetings to tell us what they are going to do, or who they want the company to be, when in reality the best way to get the desired behavior is to live it out themselves. I have worked for great companies whose leaders lived out the character traits and inspired us to do the same, and I have also worked for crazy people who wanted us to be one way but treated everyone else like dirt. Each of these bosses got the best and worst out of people by their actions. These mission statements may be good as a reminder but actions get the long-term desired results.
