I added my thoughts to the ‪@Starbucks#‎RaceTogether‬ discussion in this blog post. "Should @Starbucks bring its heart to work?"

* What are your thoughts?
*Do you agree or disagree? 
Let’s assume for a minute that the folks running Starbucks are real people who are provoked enough by a social issue to use their large stage to talk about it. Can a company ever do so in a way that is considered credible and appropriate by its customers? This is a concern needing resolution by any company that believes its obligation to give back extends beyond shareholders to the world. Starbucks can be pounced on for some cringe worthy clumsin...

Your employee culture’s obsessive concerns are “How do I survive — in this company, on this team, working for you — and once I know I’m g...

Destructive thoughts and emotions undermine the very causes of peace and happiness. If you think clearly about it, it makes no sense to think you’re seeking happiness, if you do nothing to restrain angry, spiteful, and malicious thoughts and emotions.

Companies don't have values; People do. #EmployeeCulture via +LinkedIn 
There comes a point in the execution of any performance goal where you must ask your employee culture to trust you—at the most, that everything will be better when the goal is achieved; at the very least, that the goal is going to last awhile before being replaced by another. Chances are, you’re not going to get all of that trust. Certainly, you’re not going to get it all at once.Management is focused on success, so it constantly looks forward, t...

"The difference between understanding your employees and understanding your employee culture is the difference between whether your performance goals succeed or fail.

When they form a relationship with a company, employees become a culture.

A culture is a separate organism living within your company. It has its own purpose and the power to make or break any management plan – and any manager right along with it."

Thanks @CEO800Read
