While Peggy Noonan's comments in the WSJ discuss William Safire's legacy, the bigger question she raises, as did Drew Sharp (See last week's post), is who is going to step up and say, "Enough already!"?
The current written rantings posted on blogs, tweets or Facebook expose a lack of responsibility and civility. No thought to the consequences. The belief that "I am entitled to express myself" permeates the airwaves. This translates into trouble in the workplace. We see it everyday--folks getting themselves in big trouble when they don't consider what they're writing and to whom. Sigh.
With budgets stretched, companies can't afford to have us come to them to discuss this issue. So we're reaching out to business professionals to engage in this conversation. We believe the content of our webinars is the first line of defense in establishing civil discourse.
