    The company I work for has this as one of the tenets/mottoes/whatever that every employee must learn (and dog help you if you cannot parrot all of them back on command, by the way).

    Sadly, for this particular company, it’s just about rote memorizing and not actual behaviour.

    Ah well.

      Perhaps I should’ve entitled the post “Books You Should Read, Internalize and Apply.”

      But I totally understand how some company policies are only lip service. I call them CYA—Cover Your Ass—policies. Hence, my desire for early retirement…although I have taught and am teaching my mentees to recognize assholes and to not be one. I think some of my prattling sticks. There’s hope for future generations.
