An entire cottage industry would like you to ignore this advice.

When work environments consistently fail to provide the direction, resources and respect employees require, their innate desire to achieve is suppressed or redirected. They experience frustration and a kind of learned helplessness. They become motivated to retain their jobs rather than to perform them in a way that delivers optimal value to the organization. This is a common and predictable problem. Once employees escape such a discouraging work environment, their motivation to deliver optimal value for their organization reemerges-- sometimes as they go over to a competitor.

Fortunately, and for the most part, we've been spared the organization motivational speaker-guy. We make up for it, though, with sexual harassment training.... a right or a privilege?
