Liked or Respected

Posted by Mark Salinas on December 28, 2008

Would you rather be liked or respected? For me it is simple…I prefer to be respected. I think one that commands respect would carry honestly and integrity into their actions.


How about you, respect or to be liked…what is more important?

Severance- what should you receive?

Posted by Mark Salinas on December 16, 2008

shakeUnemployment is up to 6.7%! I know many individuals that have been laid off over the past year and it doesn’t lo0k like we are going to see a slow down anytime soon! Fortunately most that are laid off  receive a severance along with all of their vacation pay whether you work for a private or public co. According to a Typical salaried (non-union) severance benefit is two (2) weeks pay for each year of service — to a maximum of 26 weeks.

Typical executive severance benefit will be in the 6 to 12 months range.

For those that are just cut loose without a severance (rare but can happen), talk with your employer and hope that humanity wins out if not look into the State and Federal Laws regarding severance packages.

For more see Severance Packages.

A trait that goes ignored by most individuals in my experience. If one is to respond whether it be good or bad news it is still a response. Don’t you appreciate a response?
