    03/11/2021 Duration: 39min

    We live in a society where we are trained from childhood to get in line and stay there.  Those that challenge the norm and try to bring new ideas & ways of doing things are labeled rule breakers and problems.

  • 33 Tangents - Episode #182 - What Does It Mean to “Ride For The Brand”?

    20/10/2021 Duration: 42min

    Part of the Code of the West is to “Ride For The Brand”.  This means to be loyal to those that take you on and hire you.  It’s not a blind loyalty, but one that is earned.   In his book Cowboy Ethics: What It Takes To Win At Life, James P. Owen writes: “The cowboy’s greatest devotion was to his calling and his way of life.  His loyalties naturally centered upon those who valued his traditions and counted upon him to uphold them.  In short, the cowboy gave allegiance and respect where they were deserved and returned.”   What does it mean to ride for the brand in a corporate setting?  When is it genuine and when is it not?   On this week’s episode of the 33 Tangents podcast, Jim and Jason take a look at what it really means to “Ride For The Brand”, how it is something that can’t be faked, and how it can show a person’s true intentions.   WHERE TO LISTEN The 33 Tangents video simulcast is now available on YouTube Subscribe on Apple Podcasts Subscribe on Google Podcasts Listen on TuneIn Listen on Am

  • 33 Tangents - Episode #177 - Recreating the Office Virtually

    15/09/2021 Duration: 51min

    With the return to the office delayed indefinitely and the talk turning to the employees coming to the office on a limited basis or only when necessary, there is an undercurrent of “how are we going to manage these people?” This goes to a far extreme of employers considering software so they can “check in” on their employees at their desk which is disturbing on many levels. Are people that unoriginal?  Is this mid-management realizing they are no longer needed if employees have autonomy? On this week’s episode of the 33 Tangents podcast, Jim and Jason talk about this alarming trend and what they see as the driver.   Items we mentioned: Jason’s LinkedIn Post 33 Tangents - Episode #89 - Talking Remote Team Management with Time Doctor Co-Founder Liam Martin The Dilbert Principle by Scott Adams WHERE TO LISTEN The 33 Tangents video simulcast is now available on YouTube Subscribe on Apple Podcasts Subscribe on Google Podcasts Listen on TuneIn Listen on Amazon Music   WHERE TO FIND US Website: www.
