Sunday Morning- Business Stories That Stood Out This Week


January 29, 2012

Back when I had not been writing for very long, I wrote a post called CBS Sunday Morning- HR Style.  I’m a huge fan of the show and it is rare that I get to watch it because by the time it comes on, my family is usually awake and the hustle and bustle of the day has begun.  I thought of the post today because the show is starting in ten minutes and my house is still quiet.  I might actually get to watch it this week.

What I like about the show is it highlights stories from the week in a news magazine style.  I learn about a wide array of things, many of which I would never had known about.  Back in 2009, I attempted my version by sharing business stories that had caught my attention.  Here are a few that I spent time reading this week:

  • Sorry I’m Late Boss, My Cat Had the Hiccups–  We’ve all heard excuses for being late to work and over 1/3 of managers say they have terminated an employee for being late.  These excuses are funny and highly creative.
  • The Real Organizational Chart-  This article from one of my “must read” blogs caught my eye because every box on the org chart is YOU.  If you want to learn how to work as a team and not individuals, this one is for you.
  • Ten Rules for Leaders-  Look, we all need a good psychologist now and then.  I get my fix by reading Incblot blog by Dr. Daniel Crosby.  This  guest article by Jeff Barnett is just pure good.  And he’s a Marine.  Share it.
  • After 70 Years, Right-to-Work Issue Remains A Hot Potato–  What is a week without a little NLRB, unions and right-to-work conversation?  Well, this article has all those components so I guess we hit the trifecta!

What did you read this week?  Share in the comments so we can all benefit!

  • I will check these out. BTW, I LOVE Sunday morning, and actually DVR it because it comes on at 7am here in LA (ugh). I have watched it for years and love every segment.
