The grey is right under your nose and you are to blind to see it.
A manager, supervisor or business owner who establishes common ground with each and every employee has everything to gain including respect. One who looks down their nose at employees and treats them as if they were dirt under their feet have everything to loose. One tends to reap what they sow.

Also does the work of two men . Even at his age.
You think Pro gives one shit about your brothers rights or wants? All he cares about is making a buck off your brothers back. Your brother could work for him for forty years then kick him on the streets without flinching. Clearly he has no conscience.

Psychopaths make for good businessmen, so says the latest studies in psychology.
Many are of the false assumptions all psychopaths are violent. Not true. If one has a history of violence in his childhood,and is psychopathic, then he is likely to be violent. But the non violent psychopath uses his lack of compassion to manipulate others. Thus this is a good way to work to the top of business.

Many psychopaths have a fairly healthy family life. So do not be fooled here.

Neuroscience can show how psychopathy is a mental disorder that is likely genetic. It is a brain abnormality. They cannot help it.
But you can learn to recognize one who is a psychopath and beware of what he may do.

I am not saying Pro is a psychopath, but he sure is showing some traits of a psychopath.

Interesting thing, one neuro-scientist that was doing much of this groundbreaking research on psychopathy, learned he himself was a psychopath.
Brain scans showed he was likely to be one. His family was not surprised to hear this.
His childhood was good, so he was not violent. But according to his family and friends, he did show many of the traits of a psychopath.

My own personal hypothesis is, psychopaths tend to be republicans.

Psychopaths tend to be republicans? Maybe that explains the desire of Silvercoast for everyone in America to have their jobs outsourced.Now.....THAT'S FUNNY!

<quoted text>Sorry Waco but I disagree. All jobs belong to the employer, not the employee. All employees are hired and compensated for services rendered, nothing more, nothing less. Regardless of where you work, employees must look at themselves as independent contractors....you can be fired just as you were hired. The ones who can't be fired are the ones who own the job.
To your brother in law, that's amazing, kudos to him......but he can still be fired.
While technically, you are correct, you miss all of the points made on the subject.

In some respects, when a person is a long standing employee and thus has experience, no one could easily replace, the job is theirs in some respects. Yes, you can still fire him, but it would be stupid and poor business to do so. Others would see your actions and thus, not likely do well for your business. Not to mention, you may not be able to find a replacement that can do the job, as some jobs need a lot of experience.

The main points on our side is, you should show a better attitude toward your workers. Making them believe it is their job can benefit you more than I think you know. Will it cause them to make a few demands? Possibly, but are those few demands worth their high productivity? Studies show, yes.

You also have a boss of sorts. The ones who buy your product or services. You can be fired by them. Many companies treat their employees well and advertise that to customers. It is good business.
Not to mention,word of mouth.

I know a local businessman that does not treat his employees so well. His reputation is so bad, many people refuse to spend money on his business just because of how he treats his people.
I know for a fact, his employees steal from him in numbers that I have never heard before.

He shows all the traits I hear about for a psychopath.

Mikey like the socialist he is, tries to hide the taxies that we are paying. The state lowers one and raises a dozen others. Then they add more by hiding them in surchargeís and fees. Through the 80ís and 90ís I paid 45 to 47 cents out of every dollar I earn to the state. Now I am paying 54 to 58 cents out of every dollar. Income tax is not the only tax that we pay. Do not act like these taxes do not exist,Count them all.
The state can steal what we have worked for any time some Nazi mind bureaucratic group decides they want what we have. Our children are property of the state the moment they are born.
I work 3 jobs to support my family and the state steals half. The state owns us our families and our property. Along with anything we would call due process. That makes us slave to the state. Not free people.
Guess who is advocating what you just condemned? Mitt Romney. He wants to lower some taxes, but cut loopholes. Loopholes getting cut is the equivalent of a tax hike.

Why republicans and other conservatives refuse to admit this is clearly just to obtain power.

He had to get some rest so he could go to Vegas the following day to play grab ass with Beyonce!
Obama and his administration are a joke!
You guys have been whining about Obama sitting in the situation room watching Benghazi and doing nothing, now you are taking that back?

I will stipulate there is nothing wrong with an employee feeling empowered in his or her job.
However, those stockholders and investors usually don't talk to the guys on the loading docks or lower level managers when profits and dividends are not on par either. Collective effort, but still up to the employer to make sure the employees are performing on task and effectively.
The boys on the docks know how to make the boss look bad.

By your own admission, you condone a felony. Embezzlement isa class H felony and against the law in North Carolina and the fact that you have knowledge of it and fail to report it to the authorities makes you as culpable as the ones who are committing the act.

An employee's motivation to show up to work is not coffee Mike. Their motivation is to receive compesation for services rendered. Trading time for money. Paying their bills demonstrates responsibility. That is why people work.

Not coffee Mike.

I knew a manager once who was very mean to her employees. Everyone called her the Grinch. She was feared and her employees walked on egg shells everyday. Ironically she was mean and did not want her employees to be near her because she herself had stolen and was in the process of stealing thousands from that company. She and her deeds were soon exposed and the grinch was sent on her merry way. As a matter of fact it was I who exposed her and I am still known as a hero to that companies owner today. The way I see it is if you are stealing from the company I work for you may as well be stealing from me.

<quoted text> It's great that you take your job seriously, as most people do, it's what makes a buisness successful, I agree. It was the employer who sought you out through some sort of advertising, you came in and applied which lead to negotiations, services rendered for compensation. Because you take pride in your job and you agreed to a contract doesn't mean it's yours, you own nothing.
Yes, you can fire your employer just as your employer can fire you, it happens everyday, but what happens next? Someone else comes in and fills the position.
When the employee says "its my job" why do you assume he means he "owns it"? I see you fail to understand what the employee is likely implying.

When the employee is working a job, it is his job in some respects. Not black and white.
You seem to be hung up on an 'ownership' issue.

You may need to put up some cameras, because your employees are probably stealing from you, as you do not show compassion and understanding. Its your way or the highway. Well the employee is going to take because you refuse to give. Be it simply compassion and understanding.

Not black and white Mike. Right and wrong.

An employee feeling empowered has absolutely nothing to do with taking the human element out of the decision making process for your company, especially if you want to turn a profit or generate revenue. But I don't have to tell you that Mike, as a manager, you should already know that, right?
