PC and Tone!

By AndrewBushard - Mar 10 2019
Read more

I consider tone when evaluating podcasts, so the hosts' tone that borders on surliness and ornerness ailenates me. I find value in their advice, but I wish the hosts would act like Jesus and have a tone of loving. They say, "organizations exists to serve society." Christians say, "organizations exist to glorify God" These guys tuck their tails between their legs and let the walking on eggshells political correctness (PC) movement ruin organizations. "No hugging", they say! I read an article about a company getting sued. because a manager said, "Have a blessed day". Would these PC guys support that? These guys act like wimps when facing the political correctness movement. Get your management theory elsewhere.

Excellent
