You heard it here first, the ThisWeekIn Network is announcing its latest show titled This Week in Common Courtesy. In this week's episode, Derek Huether expounds upon the topic of common courtesy.
After a (Generation Y) Mahalo employee gave his resignation notice via email, CEO of Mahalo and TWiST Host Jason Calacanis, calmly explained the value employees provide, just by showing up for work. He went on to provide valuable insights to help some Generation Y understand their place in the world and what they deserve.
After this very instructional message, you'd think members of Generation Y would have had the common courtesy of listening. A few days later, I reported an average performance rating for a (GenY) subordinate. She then argued with me about not giving her a perfect 10. When push comes to shove, I’m the one doing the assessment. Have the common courtesy of respecting that and ask how to excel in your position, not just show up. Jason's supporting comment to me was:
Jason, though she is no longer with our organization, I will make sure she gets her trophy.
That's all the time we have for this week.
