Bullying. We hear about it on TV and read it in the news almost daily. Kids getting pushed around on playgrounds or cyber-bullied through social media. But does bullying go away once we are in the workforce?
When I started running my first company, I sat across from my mentor at breakfast and asked, “Is it important for me to tell employees how they should be getting their work done, or should I set goals and trust them that they know the best way to accomplish their work?”
Once upon a time, an employee used to leave work, come home from the office and unplug. There was this concept called “Work/Life Balance” that helped a person prioritize between their career and lifestyle areas.
