    My boss once told me: You’re the worst person in the whole d**n department!” I wish I had the presence of mind to ask him if I had arrived.

    Geee, we have to tell management you don’t get the best work from people you humiliate ? Wow, good to see business has such a firm grasp on the obvious.

    learned that years ago when I first was starting my business I was young and arrogant and almost lost the best employee I had by being stupid. I realized how badly I messed up and apologized and that employee is still one of the most valuable employees in my company. I have since made clear any manager who dares risk the loss of an employee by behaving in such a manner is expendible. After 38 years in business and being successful beyond my wildest dreams, IT is true you catch more flies with honey than vinegar and if you want loyal hardworking employees who will make you successful you appreciate them let them know it and make sure their pay and benefits are way above average, do that and they will make you rich.

    Try not to deliberately embarrass an employee in front of the person they are serving and their co-workers. Take them aside and speak privately.

    Read “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. Try to get your hands on an early edition. At first you’ll cringe a bit at how outdated the situations and examples seem, but as you read it, you will realize the lessons are still true today. Much of the management training seminars and gurus are simply repackaging what is already in that book.
