First let me say that I am attempting to compose this blog on my iPad, which my husband claims is a piece of cake. I hope the cake is chocolate, because I will need it after this stressful job.
The good news is I will make this short and to the point. Two of my favorite TV shows are Shark Tank and Undercover Boss. I will write someday about Shark Tank, many more life lessons there.
Tonight just a word about Undercover Boss, I hadn’t thought about using it as a blog topic until the Hudson News boss had a great line to open the show. “if you don’t evolve you are irrelevant, and if you are irrelevant you die.”
That struck a chord with me because of my tag line, but my observation has more to do with something I have noticed every time I watch that show. The CEO’s all have one thing in common, none of them can master the most menial jobs.
If nothing else it should make all big businesses aware of how important the workers are, and almost all very big operations would fail without the workers who keep them going.The people who are the front line with the customers.
It doesn’t matter whether it is retail or a service business, the executives can’t quite master the tasks at hand. It stands as a lesson to the “little people”, the cogs in the wheel are way more important than they believe. That show should up the self-esteem of employees everywhere!
P.S. I can write it on the iPad but still can’t figure out the bells and whistles. Had to finish on the mothership!
