Can America please resurrect "Bullying" at work? Before it's too late?

Tough Professions, Tough Choices. Either we Get in the Game--or we Get Out. Sounds harsh--but it's 100% true. It's one of the few absolutes for upper-level execs and managers, officers, owners, leaders and professionals.

In our view, most of you--the vast majority--are mailing it in. And you are hurting others. Maybe a career change?

There are lots of satisfying careers where you can't as easily compromise Clients, Customers, Buyers, Patients, Fiduciaries and even your Employer--people who count on you in callings where your work for them really counts.

Lawyering, too, by the way, isn't a dodge. Not for people who work to feel good about themselves for 2 hours a week, i.e., on Friday nights in a bar with other lawyer friends. There has to be more. It's an honor to be a lawyer--and a huge responsibility.

Thank you, Eric L. Mayer and Military Underdog.
