Property Rights - Are Yours about to be lost?

Are you aware that your rights to your privat property are being eroded day by day? Did you know that "redevelopment" can decide to consider you a blight area at whim and condemn your property?
Do you realize that mom and pop shops are being torn down to make room for "modernization" which means other retailers that are more "acceptable" to the local government decision makers?

Apathy is what allows it to happen. Oh well, you say, I say, we say,it's not happening to me, sowhy concern myself. Why? Because you - and me - might be next.

Performance Appraisal - or Kindergarten Report Card

Does your firm have a generic performance appraisal used throughout to conduct the mandatory once a year requirement? If so, do you find it helpful? Most managers/directors with whom I speak, do not. They reluctantly take the time to fill out the form, but neither they, nor the employees they review, find it helpful.

Wouldn't you like a performance appraisal system that helps you - and the people who report to you - create goals, objectives, standards, and methods of calibrating success?

Wouldn't you like to have different forms for different types of workers?
