…when the Patriots lose the SuperBowl. Over at Boston.com, Boston fans are feeling the pain.
In a portent of the sad things to come for our New England Patriots, this blog from Friday got a few people’s hackles up. Over at Cali & Jody, the authors took issue with my comment that in a time of economic uncertainty, employees may want to be extra careful about calling in sick the day after the Super Bowl. While I meant the tone to be light, I can appreciate their perception that it came across a bit harsh and old school. I applaud their commitment to and suggestions for helping organizations create a Results-Only Work Environment. When organizations have to make tough decisions about their workforce, it is absolutely the people who drive results that survive – and they aren’t necessarily those who maximize their face time with management.2
