You're right, a problem doesn't have to be a crisis! I would suggest therefore - a problem must be clearly defined before a solution is attempted. A problem can only be solved if you and I can agree on exactly what the problem is. Let us say we are discussing among others: Living wage or American values or middle class or good paying jobs or myriad other deceptively simple terms. Do you know what they mean? Or do you only think you know what they mean? Could you write a definition and if so will it be the same as mine. Do they mean the same to me as they do to you? If you don't determine mutual agreement how are you going to even discuss the problem? Not heretofore mentioned but if you are hiring for a leadership position - do you know what a leader is/does? What, for instance, is the difference between a leader and a manager? Before attempting a solution perhaps the problem should be stated in writing along with an agreement among all interested parties that any offered solution remain strictly within its parameters.

I think it's important to remember when facing the public, "The mike is always on, the film is always running and FACEBOOk IS NOBODYS FRIEND!" I know what I am about to say now is very basic and I apologize for it but - BUT - the use of foul language especially the "f" word will quickly put an end to my doing business with you! And never forget I WILL look you up on facebook before dealing with you because chances are good you'll be there chatting away about ships and shoes and sealing wax and cabbages and kings naively believing I am not out there assessing your character.

@ginidietrich @jdrobertson I am for sale on Amazon - however the hard copy is in the mail to you via Box 13013 Chicago IL - USPS tracking number: 9114901159818104302254. I was only teasing about a trade I send my magnum opus to you in appreciation for the wonderful SpinSucks (hate the name by the way) blogsite and the great, great bunch who frequent (abuse) it. It is fun, civil, way upscale and if I could get all the people I'd like to meet who appear on SpinSucks it would take Lincoln Center three shifts to hold them. I would particularly like to meet you, Rebecca Amy Todd, who I sometimes think you need to throw a net over and Bella Lindsey. That said, I do believe it's just possible - just possible mind you - if you're careful you just may.learn something. I don't remember how I came on to SpinSucks but it most certainly was a red letter day for me. - God bless. p.s.
