Vampire and zombies are everywhere. It’s been a Summer and Fall full of supernatural events and television.. From True Blood to the Walking Dead, and to people showing zombie-like symptoms across the U.S., have you wondered if vampires and zombies lurked into your workplace? Yes, I did write vampires and zombies. According to Howard's Gift: Uncommon Wisdom to Inspire Your Life's Work, workers can be categorized into 4 different identities when it comes to workplace culture: stars, potentials, vampires, and zombies.
If you aren't into vampire and zombie terminology, you can always go by Baron Von Hammerstein Equord's, a German Officer in the 1930’s, methodology:
"I divide officers into four classes -- the clever, the lazy, the stupid, and the industrious. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the high staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy is fit for the very highest commands. He has the temperament and the requisite nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious must be removed immediately."
What do you think? Is your dealership full of vampires and zombies or do you have stars and potentials on your team?
