Why You Probably Can't Change Your Boss

Have you ever worked for an organization you knew had a bad leader, but you thought you could change him or her? I’ve talked to countless frustrated employees who have attempted just that, and I can tell you, it doesn’t work. By the time a pastor, CEO, or other leader reaches that place in his or her career, they’ve been at it a long time and developed a routine. So for anyone to think they can turn on a dime is simply a hallucination.

Journalist Peggy Noonan wrote recently about the issue: “Seven years ago I was talking to a longtime Democratic operative on Capitol Hill about a politician who was in trouble. The politician was likely finished, he said. I was surprised. Can’t he change things and dig himself out? No. “People do what they know how to do.” Politicians don’t have a vast repertoire. When they get in a jam they just do what they’ve always done, even if it’s not working anymore.” FULL POST

Life can throw us a lot of curves. Our childhood, our parents, physical challenges, early experiences on the job, all indelibly imprint us with bad behaviors that are hard to shake. A woman abused as a child, a man whose father told him he’d never amount to much, a person who lives with insecurity. Big or small, they damage our relationships, the quality of our work, and our chances for success. But there are three specific personality “quirks” that really set people back from achieving all they could become in life. I’m not a psychologist, and don’t have all the answers for fixing these problems, but I’ve discovered that if we can take a frank look at ourselves, and at least recognize the limiting behaviors, it helps us get started on the road to freedom.

2014 Fraud Report Trends Infographic

With fraudsters using more and more sophisticated methods every day, what steps do organizations need to take in order to stay ahead? According to our 2014 Fraud report, the rise in the amount of suspected fraud from 2013 to 2014 was significant, with 87 percent of survey respondents reporting they had experienced suspected fraud over the last 12 months, up from two-thirds in 2013. Understanding fraud targets allows an organization to discover and respond to potential threats, ensuring that legitimate customers get in and fraud stays out. There are three major trends that were apparent in this year’s fraud report:
1. Fraudsters continue to target web applications.
2. Credit, debit, and prepaid card fraud remains a major concern.
3. Small dollar fraud prevails.
By addressing any weaknesses and enhancing the capabilities of a fraud prevention program using dynamic identity verification methods, an organization can effectively detect fraud and prevent it from taking place. Now is the time to act in order to protect customers and ensure that transactions process smoothly. Identity verification and fraud prevention technology solutions are a great way to ensure compliance with regulations, increase customer acquisition, and drive revenue.
