Habits You Must Avoid at the Workplace
2. Discrimination - Never make the mistake of discriminating against others on facts based upon religion, nationality, caste, color and other differences. Be respectful of the origination and ethnicity of other employees since doing otherwise might harness resentment for you.

The word integrity is the most overused and misunderstood word in business. Many claim to have the upmost highest level of integrity when it comes to serving their customers, respecting their service partners and treatment of their employees but very few really know what the word means. By definition, integrity means a steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code so the question that comes to mind is whose moral or ethical code? Yours? Your parents? Society? Your religion? Your friends? The list could go on and on.
Having integrity is doing what you believe to be true and moral based upon the ethical code you have chosen to adopt in your life. All of the experiences you have had and all of the influences you have met, how you were raised and the religion you follow are all part of the composition of your ethical code. Integrity is the developed by making the right choices that support your ethical code consistently and without waiver. Integrity is something you have ev...Read More »

The other day I was talking with my mother's doctor about the upcoming Super Bowl game. I was telling him about a party I would be attending at a friend's home. My friend lives in what some might call a mansion. It's a beautiful home with the most breathtaking landscaping.
At one point he said, "Doesn't it make you wonder what you did wrong?" I commented, "Yes, I guess I could marry rich though."
When I got home and started to think about it, I realized my comment was so off base for me and said in haste in an effort to end the discussion and get my mom home.
I'm not an under earner and I'm not a victim! I make plenty of money and my business and income continues to increase each year. Only under earners or those who see themselves as victims would view someone else's wealth in this manner.
Do you find yourself wishing for something different? Do you wish you could turn your financial situation around? Here are my three best tips to help you increase your income, st...Read More »
- The Daily Muse | Work + Money | Fri, Nov 30, 2012 2:29 PM EST | CommentsMaybe your co-worker accidentally let the cat out of the bag. (It happens.) Maybe your interviewer happens to be your boss' brother. (It's a small world.) Maybe you left your resume in the office printer. (Wait, seriously?)
In any case, your boss has gotten wind that your last few "doctor's appointments" have actually been interviews. And now you've found yourself face-to-face with her in a closed-door meeting, being asked, "So, I hear you're looking for a new job. Is that true?"
Now, while this sounds like an expletive-inducing situation, let me assure you that many an employee has walked out of these meetings unscathed (and with employment in tact). In fact, I am one of them. And while those meetings certainly weren't fun (yes, this happened to me twice), they both ended far better than you might think. Here's my advice when you're caught red-handed.
Be HonestRepeat after me: Do not lie. Yes, you can sugar-coat the truth (more on that later), and you can certainly laugh the...Read More »
