Thinking Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Baker.........sad. Sad that these men can't think about the consequences and remember how others have fallen.
The most respected MAN that I know of is Billy Graham...he knew how to avoid those traps. I hear George Bush was equally cautious. Good for them.
These TRAMPS are always lurking for their next snare.
Years ago, in my corporate life, I rotated back into the office from four years of being on construction sites, in a trailer.
I was promoted and given charge of an interior design division, consisting of ten women and two men.They were trouble, and I had a reputation as a problem solver, so the execs asked me to get that group in working order.
Four of the women thought each of them were going to be promoted to be new director. When I was promoted and brought in over them, even though I had a terrific working relationship in the past with each of them on projects all over the country, the claws came out for little ole me.
One thing I always did, because Billy Graham did it. When I met with a female subordinate or visitor to my office, the door was never closed. Even if there confidential discussions, the door always stayed ajar so someone could see in. I also asked my female secretary to “check-in” on me every so often, as she knew the long knives were out for me.
Out in the field, it was mostly men working on a site. Here, the game was different.I could write a book about it, but I survived, and the division performed well. This was in the very early 1990s, when sexual harassment cases were new to the corporate world.
After two years in that position, I went into facilities management, and enjoyed that far more.
