Stuff The Capitalist (aka KD) Likes: TLC References at Work....

Who am I?  Who cares?  Good questions.  It's my site, so I'm going dig in once in awhile by telling you more about who I am - via a "Stuff I Like" series.  Nothing too serious, just exploring the micro-niche that resides at the base of all of our lives.  Potshots encouraged in the comments...

For my money, there's no more quotable group in music history than TLC. Sure, one of the members burned down Andre Rison's house, but doesn't that just add to the legend?  The fact that they also hailed from the ATL just puts them higher on my list.

Raise your hand if you've down the following as a manager or HR pro:

--Told a direct report who's interviewing a candidate that you would prefer to have No Scrubs...

--Advised a colleague who was chasing projects with a low probability of success not to chase Waterfalls...

--Encouraged a direct report who was embarking on a politically risky project to Creep.

--Helped someone cope with being screwed by not quoting Whodini, but instead asking What About Your Friends?

For effective use of TLC quotes at work, see the video below (email subscribers click through for video) from The Other Guys, with Michael Keaton using TLC references to Will Ferrel's growing displeasure....

Please use TLC references at work responsibly...

I'm surprised, but quite impressed and delighted, that you dropped a Whodini reference in here! HA! Well done KD!
