For Better Labor Relations, Try Employee Engagement
In Congress, however, politicians and special interest lobbyists are so intent on gridlock, turf wars, maintaining the status quo, and appealing to their hyper-partisan bases that they have no interest in compromise. In fact, they're encouraged not to compromise; praised for their resolve when they're inflexible, and scorned by true believers when they cede ground. These are the people who are supposed to lead us.
In the real world responsible people — managers and staff — work in common purpose to meet timelines, budgets and other important responsibilities. They are held accountable if they don't. They shouldn't look to Congress for leadership. They should look to themselves.
