You'd never get anything done!
Do you really want your best workers to spend their time chasing people for rubber-stamp approvals? If you're talking about a big project or new procedure, approvals are appropriate, but to require them on everything is ludicrous. It slows down work, wastes money, and tells people you don't trust their judgment.
Dumb rules for time off.
If a dedicated employee doesn't feel good enough to come to work, what's the point in making them drag themselves out of bed to get a doctor's slip? Just let people know that when they're sick, they're expected to stay home and rest until they're well enough and noncontagious enough to return to work. For a serious illness, maybe a transition time of half days is appropriate.
Similarly, if people want to take a personal day, don't make them lie about it. Treat the great people you hired with respect. Trust that they know how to honor their time and work hard delivering on their promises, and encourage them to take a down day if they need it for whatever reason, no questions asked. Requiring documentation is another case of sending a message that you don't trust the people you've hired. Dumb rules for frequent flyer miles.

Women, on the other hand, prefer no solution but that other people simply listen to.
And with airport check-in lines that stretch out for hours, TSA impositions, and constantly canceled flights, it can seriously feel like years are being shaved off your life. That's why frequent flyer miles should belong to the person who earned them, not the company. It's a no-cost way for you to reward the person's sacrifice. Rules stating otherwise are not only stupid but grossly unfair. I have worked with companies that put complete faith in employee engagement surveys, but frankly I believe they're a sham.
And then you enter the black hole--the space between applying for a job and being hired or getting an impersonal notification that the job's been filled. Get our newsletter every Friday! Anyways is a slang 3. Rule 5: Do not put a picture of your burrito as your profile picture. Ahh… but this is a blog about marketing, not personal journaling. I will admit I am a bit lax when it comes to grammar.
If you want to know how things are, just walk around and ask people face-to-face. Speak to them, hold a conversation, engage. A quick online survey will give you shallow responses. The best way to learn what's happening is to have honest, candid conversations about what is working and what is not. If that's impossible, you have a big problem with connection and communication--the two most important things that drive engagement. Look to the source and speak to the heart of your people.
They don't need to speak through fancy surveys; they can get to the heart of the matter on their own if you give them a chance. Dumb rules for cell phones. Making people check their phones on the way in so they can't be used for confidential documents or information shows only--again--a lack of trust. The main reason for having a phone is so you can be easily contacted. Why not trust your smart people to make smart choices? Dumb rules for internet use.

It's one thing to ask people to limit their time or to put reasonable restrictions on what kind of sites they can visit, but to forbid access to information is just plain dumb. Many organizations still have the throwback rule that employees have to be in a position for six months before they can transfer or be promoted. Thinking Richard is in fact Rahl, she uses her powers on him. Rahl, thinking Richard is now at his mercy, uses him to recite the Book of Counted Shadows.
Kahlan, alone by a pool, orders Richard to leave, thinking he is still under her power, and Richard reveals he was protected, by his already complete and unconditional love for her. The reader learns at the end of the novel that Richard is the progeny of Rahl's rape of Zedd's daughter.

Each of the novels in the Sword of Truth series reveals a "Wizard's Rule"—a magical principle that allows Wizards to be savvy manipulators of the world around them. The novel reveals the Wizard's First Rule: . Wizard's First Rule: people are stupid. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true.
People's heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.
Darken Rahl knows the Wizard's Rules. He is using the first one.
People need an enemy to feel a sense of purpose. It's easy to lead people when they have a sense of purpose. Sense of purpose is more important by far than the truth. In fact, truth has no bearing in this. Darken Rahl is providing them with an enemy, other than himself, a sense of purpose.
People are stupid; they want to believe, so they do. Terri Windling identified Wizard's First Rule as one of the best fantasy debuts of , saying that although the novel was "derivative," it "does have a certain charm and earnestness about it".
