Excerpts: Who Are "They" Anyway - Part VIII

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 3:36 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

So I went to ask my boss.
Her door was open,
      so I walked right in.
She looked up from the paperwork
      on her desk.
Whats up?
      she asked,
as she motioned for me to sit.
Whats up is my frustration,
      I replied.
I try to do a good job,
but problems come up,
some of which
could have been prevented.
But when I talk to others
all I hear is:
      They dont want to hear about problems.
      They only want good news.
      They dont like people who rock the boat.
And me, Im trying to figure out
who this THEY is!
Youre my boss
Are you one of them?
Are you responsible?
