The Top 100 Movie Quotes for HR Pros: #68 is Tyler Durden: "How's That Working Out For You?"...

New series at the Capitalist: The Top 100 Movie Quotes of all time for HR Pros.  In no special order, I break down the 100 movie quotes that resonate most for me as a career HR pro.  Some will be funny, some will be serious... Some will tug at your heart like when the Fox voice-over guy said, "Tonight - a very special episode of 90210"... You get the vibe... I'll do it countdown-style like they're ranked, but let's face it - they're ALL special..

#68: "How's that working out for you?...Being Clever"...

Clever

The corporate world is full of characters, right?  You're trying to make it through the day and all the sudden someone's filling your ear in a self important way, telling you about their approach, how it has worked wonders, etc.

You know, there trying to tell you they're special.  They're looking for validation from you.

It could be a way they're handling a client, the way they like to interview or anything else.  But they're telling you because they want you to react in a positive way.

You're not feeling it.  You can always channel a little Tyler Durden, who famously reacted to the Narrator's plane monolog on "Single Serving Friends" in Fight Club by asking, "How's that working out for you?"

It acknowledges the person is talking to you.  It asks a probing question.  If "keep it up then" is added to the end, it's snarky without being positioning you as a total #ss.

Like the approach?

Keep it up, then.  (email subscribers click through for video below)
