You're still requiring popularity to work with this person. You're telling people that unless the reactions of others toward them change, they're fired.Bust Nak wrote:Not necessarily, That's a matter of degree. I can work with some unpopular people.
My only problem with this is that people can't change others' reactions. People can only control their own behaviour.
Nothing. But you will continue to not get results when you replace the rude surgeon. Tammy will find the next guy rude, and the next, and the next, until she finds a surgeon who will sufficiently bribe her to hand the scalpel, because that's the power you've given her. When you finally find someone who is "not rude" it'll just mean he was the one who put more effort into bribing/pleasing the team than he did into the guy dying on the table.Bust Nak wrote:What's wrong using the result > skill premise?
This is why everything sucks. All jobs are now politics. Who gets the job as a surgeon? The best social butterfly. Who gets the job as the movie writer? Not a good writer - a good social butterfly. It goes all the way down from up at the very top to the people flipping burgers. No one can do their job because the job has nothing to do with doing the job: It has to do with not offending anybody and being a perfect social butterfly.
We would live in a perfect world if everyone even remotely likable just suddenly died off.
I only wish it was a standard of behaviour. In my experience, once someone decides they don't like another person, they will just call that person rude and no behaviour on the part of the rude person can make him not rude, according to the accusers.Bust Nak wrote:Because being rude goes against my standard of behavior.
