Drama works at the office

As a small business owner myself, I understand the importance of leading a drama-free workplace but rather than "dissing" a former employee for revealing her compensation to co-workers, why not embrace the opportunity to have a frank discussion with remaining employees? It seems like a great opportunity to open a discussion about developing skills, increasing productivity, and giving clients/customers more value. By Casey on 2014 07 02

Drama works at the office

Salary secrecy is what holds many women and minorities at low pay levels compared with their peers. Some states are passing laws making it illegAl to require employees to maintain their salaries as confidential. Yes, there are reasons why some people are paid more than others and if you can't justify them, do the right thing for the other employees and give them a raise! By Cindy Wolf on 2014 07 02

"Gal"? "Girl"? You're a woman, don't be "that woman." I see your points, but they are negated by your condescending terminology. By Nora on 2014 07 02

Crafty bean scene

I'm so glad to see that Colorado (or maybe just Denver) is getting into the coffee business like they are the craft food business. I had a friend from Germany touring Denver last week and I was able to take her out for "espresso" at two different unique and good venues. Hopefully with enough locals we can push back against the dreaded Starbucks. By Buzz Buzz on 2014 07 01

How to make the impossible possible

Wow TC that was great. Your reference to the palpable, collective negativity below the surface stuck a cord with me as I had a flashback of my corporate jobs. Makes me smile that I am my own boss who choose to not allow that in. Thanks for your expertise and can't wait to see your new program that you are working on. Liz By liz wendling on 2014 06 30
