Funny Friday: Video Conferencing
Even though I do most of my work using video conferences, I admit to experiencing every one of these issues. This video gave me a laugh and I hope it brightens your day.
The Video Meeting
As more of us are working remotely, I’m sure you will relate!
“We need a laugh sometimes. This is especially important in these very troubled times. Can you hear me?”
This might surprise you. Compensation does not have to be equal in a 50-50 partnership. You can, in fact, do anything you want as long as it’s agreeable with your partner or partners. Read on!
When business partnerships go bad, very often someone wants out. That starts one of two possible processes. The business enters Wind Down and begins the process of closing or the partners start discussing a Buyout.
When the business partnership breaks down, the darker sides of the personalities come through. A dominant partner turns into a bully. A person who does not do well with conflict will withdraw. As the bully gets more aggressive, the pacifist withdraws further. Eventually, the bully gets so angry they are ready to lock the other partner out. The pacifist quits coming in. The next blowout is over money. The course is as logically predictable as what will happen to your car if you hit the highway with no oil in the engine. It will get louder and louder until the engine seizes.
