I worked in Human Resources for umpteen years. What I learned was that all work rules and policies could be boiled down to just three basics:
- Show up
- Be nice
- Do your job
Countless times I met with a manager who had a “great employee” with a severe attendance issue. It really clarified the situation when I asked “what’s the first rule of work?”
If you don’t show up, you are not a great employee.
Employees with an “attitude problem” (against co-workers, management, customers, subordinates, shareholders etc.) are not nice. They are in violation of Rule #2.
Employees who do not perform their job are not complying with Rule #3.
See how easy this is?
My future blogs will translate these three basic rules as they apply to artists. Stay tuned!
