TGIF – Playing Favorites.

December 16, 2011 by Bill Bradley

As the week winds down, we wind down with some tidbits for your information, education, health, and enjoyment.

Quote of the Week: “Mom always liked you best!”  Tommy Smothers

Humor Break: “Why is it always my least favorite people who accuse me of favoritism?”

Stat of the Week: Twenty-three percent of more than 300 senior business executives in the U.S. admitted to practicing favoritism in determining promotions, with 9 percent saying it played a role in deciding their last promotion.

Action Tip: Interested in learning more about favoritism in the workplace?  Read about similar statistics in this Wall Street Journal article: Playing Favorites.

Volunteering: If there is one group out of favor, it is the homeless.  The holiday season is upon us.  Volunteer through your religious organization or a community volunteer organization to take a half day and serve meals to the less favored.  (There are probably a dozen places you can volunteer within 10 miles of you.  It isn’t hard to find a place.)

Bill Bradley (mostly) retired after 35 years in organizational consulting, training and management development. During those years he worked internally with seven organizations and trained and consulted externally with more than 90 large and small businesses, government agencies, hospitals and schools.
