Do you ever feel like when you try to discuss a topic with someone that has an opposing view point, that it just turns into an argument? Well maybe not an argument. But so many people SAY they are open to discussing a topic. But few are actually willing to hear, or research a view point that is conflicting with their own. And it really is too bad. It is a great way to share knowledge, to grow, to gain new views on things. And maybe open one's heart, and mind to other possibilities.
We have all had one, or more; that boss you just can't stand, the micromanaging, ass riding, disrespectful person that gets to dictate exactly how you do your job. Even if they themselves have never done it. The one who calls all the shots, gets all the credit, gets paid more than you, and yet is really, just kind of an asshole. My experience, mostly in an industrial workplace setting, is that bad workplace culture, and interactions tend to drive down morale. Which in turn, drives down production, which for a company, drives down profits, and increases turnover rate faster than a fast food place spits out burgers. It is the most neglected aspect in a lot of workplaces, but in my opinion, the most important.
