He's Grounded! Delta Bans Obnoxious Trump Supporter For Life

Delta Air Lines has placed a lifelong ban on the Donald Trump supporter who was filmed before takeoff on a Nov. 22 flight harassing passengers who voted for Hillary Clinton, Delta CEO Ed Bastian announced Monday in an internal memo. The passenger, described in the memo as “loud, rude and disrespectful,” shouted belligerently and called out “Hillary bitches” soon after boarding the flight from Atlanta, Georgia, to Allentown, Pennsylvania.  Bastian said flight attendants made “the best decision they could given the information they had” by allowing the man to remain on the flight, but he admitted the airline made a mistake. “If our colleagues had witnessed firsthand what was shown in the video, there is no question they would have removed him from the aircraft,” Bastian wrote. The CEO told employees that Delta has issued refunds to all the passengers on the flight and that the decision to ban the passenger came after Delta received a wave of criticism for not kicking the man off at the time of the incident. Many people commented on the company’s Facebook page, pointing out the hypocrisy of airlines who boot Muslim passengers from flights for doing virtually nothing wrong while letting disruptive white passengers, like the man on the flight to Allentown, slide. In a video that went viral last week, the passenger can be seen in the aisle of the airplane cheering for President-elect Trump and insulting Clinton supporters. “We got some Hillary bitches on here?” the man yells to the passengers. “Donald Trump, baby!” he says later in the video. “It’s y’all president. Every goddamn one of you. If you don’t like it, too bad.” Emma Baum, who sat next to the loud Trump supporter, said she first noticed the man chanting “Make America great again” outside of the airport terminal before boarding, The Morning Call newspaper in Allentown reported. The passenger continued to talk about Trump when they were seated on the plane, so Baum filmed his rant and posted it to Facebook. The video has been watched more than 2.4 million times and shared nearly 19,000 times in less than a week.  Before takeoff, a flight attendant escorted the man from his seat after his obnoxious monologue, questioned him, then allowed him to return to his seat. “This is what I get for being a patriot,” Baum quoted the passenger as saying when he returned, according to The Morning Call. Delta initially issued an apology to customers on Nov. 26, admitting that the offending passenger should not have been allowed back on the plane. In Monday’s internal memo, Bastian told Delta employees that he wanted to make sure they knew “we have your backs.” “The heightened tension in our society means that now more than ever we must require civility on our planes and in our facilities,” the CEO wrote. “We will not tolerate anything less.” The identity of the obscene Trump supporter has not been released, but video of his rude speech to passengers continues to circulate online. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Delta Bans Disruptive, Pro-Trump Passenger For Life

Following a pro-Trump outburst on a flight from Atlanta to Allentown, Pennsylvania, Delta Airlines has banned a disruptive passenger from flying the airline ever again.  In a video of the event that went viral, the man is seen gesturing to other passengers, shouting “We got some Hillary bitches on here? ...It’s your president. Every goddam one of you. If you don’t like it, too bad." Delta Airlines issued a public statement on the event: "We are sorry to our customers who experienced this disruption. We have followed up with the teams involved and all agree that this customer should not have been allowed to continue on the flight.   Our responsibility for ensuring all customers feel safe and comfortable with Delta includes requiring civil behavior from everyone.   The behavior we see in this video does not square with our training or culture and follow up will continue so we can better ensure our employees will know they will be fully supported to make the right decisions when these issues arise."   ...   “This individual displayed behavior that was loud, rude and disrespectful to his fellow customers,” Delta Chief Executive Officer Ed Bastian said in a letter to employees. “‘He will never again be allowed on a Delta plane.” While the man should certainly have chosen his words more... "tactfully", he did not accuse anyone of being a racist, a sexist, a bigot, a homophobe, a nazi, or hitler, and was - at least for now pending a potential recount - factually correct with regard to Mr. Trump being every American's president.

Authentic Leadership Means Being Real

Authentic leadership is really about owning yourself, knowing who you are and what your leadership style is. Many people don't realize it, but a big part of true leadership is the ability and willingness to identify, accept and share yourself as a whole person - not just someone who works perfectly in an office. Sharing yourself completely in the workplace is about more than just showing up and being professional. It is how you create true and lasting relationships with your co-workers, communicate clearly with your team and company leadership, and bring your best self to work. It's Not About Knowing Everything The truth is, your co-workers want to know you as a whole person, not just the good or shiny side of you. When I worked in corporate, I struggled most with being vulnerable at work. I always felt like I had to have all the answers all the time. I felt like I had to be perfect. I felt like if someone came to me with a question, I needed to be able to say, "I have a solution for you." Of course, it is important to be knowledgeable about your field and to be willing to find a solution even when you're not sure. But it's absolutely okay to not know everything because there's no way that anyone actually does know everything. This is why we work as a team. Every high-powered person with a lot of responsibility surrounds themselves with advisors and experts. There's no reason for us to feel like we have to be experts at everything - that's unrealistic. It's Okay - Even Good - to Show Emotion at Work I always thought that, in the workplace, I had to present a cheerful, professional face, no matter how I was actually feeling on the inside or what was going on in my life. Showing emotions and accepting my weaknesses was definitely not part of presenting a polished exterior 100% of the time. The tricky thing is that our lives simply aren't always perfect. Things don't run smoothly every day, and sometimes things are downright difficult. We're whole people - we have well-rounded family lives, we have friends, and we have personal objectives outside of our professional lives. We should be able to carry that whole person into work, too. There's no need to hide any part of yourself to create a façade at work. A high performance team needs to trust each other, and openness and communication fosters trust. Here's an example: if you're having a hard day, it's okay to talk about it in the office. In fact, when a colleague asks how you are, you can reply, "I had a bad morning, so if I come across as a little upset, that's the reason. Please don't take it personally." Now your team understands what's going on and they can cut you some slack that day instead of becoming frustrated when you don't bring your A Game to the table. Of course, there's a fine line between sharing your emotional state and downright complaining at work. If your state of mind begins to interfere with your work, your boss will likely approach you and say something like, "Hey, we understand that things are tough, but is there anything you can do or we can do together to make things better for you?" That opens up a conversation. The Best Leaders Are Approachable As a leader, you'll notice that the higher up you look within an organization, the more you'll see people who are approachable and open to connection. A good example is Delta Air Lines CEO Richard Anderson. He is known for remembering all the employees with whom he interacts. When he flies on Delta, you won't see him in business class (though everyone would certainly understand if he chose to sit there!) - instead, you'll find Mr. Anderson sitting in coach so he can understand what his customers experience on his airline. Mr. Anderson is known for truly connecting with people. He never speaks from "the top down," and he is greatly successful for it. He's open about who he is, and he brings a whole, well-rounded person to the office each day. When you reflect on your experience in the office, do you see any room to bring more of your whole self into the workplace? People love working with other people, not perfectly polished workers who never show their human side. If you're ready to get more insight into how you can bring your full self to work without crossing the line into the complaining zone, let's talk. I work one-on-one with corporate clients to establish growth and expansion in their career.

Normalization Of Deviation

by Captain Alan W. Price, Delta Air Lines Retired On the evening of the 27th of January, 1986, Bob Ebeling and four other Morton Thiokol engineers engaged in a heated discussion with their leadership team: It was too cold to launch the next day - the solid booster seals may not function properly. In spite of their protestations, NASA decides to launch. That night, Bob despondently told his wife Darlene "it's going to blow up!" The next morning, 73 seconds after launch, the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded, taking the lives of seven astronauts. The "O" ring seals failed due to the low temperatures, allowing hot gas "blow by" which destroyed the Challenger. How could this have happened, and who was responsible? Great questions central to today's discussion. In her thought-provoking book ("The Challenger Launch Decision") Dr. Diane Vaughn coined a new phrase - Normalization of Deviation: Organizations establish safe best practices. One day it becomes expedient to deviate from one or more of these processes. Nothing untoward occurs. Over time, this becomes the new "normal". Other small steps away from this new normal occur. Then, a disaster happens. RCA (Root Cause Analysis) reveals this progressive movement away from safe practice. NASA was guilty of Normalization of Deviation, the last and most egregious example of which was a decision to launch in conditions too cold to guarantee safety. Bob and his colleagues had feared this very thing. Sadly, they were correct. No one in a position to stop the launch thought these risks were too great for the rewards sought. What does the Challenger disaster teach us about decision making in the modern world? Plenty. Let's dive right in. Leaders are constantly challenged to maximize some preset metric while minimizing its cost to produce. Fill in the blanks as to the exact figures but we all live in this risk-reward universe. Do well, and the future is bright; fail to meet target and darkness ensues. Into this volatile mix we insert a complication: Is the operation safe and is it wise? This is a very different consideration than profitability and productivity. I come from an industry where safety first is the "key" concept, not just in theory but also in practice. In my industry, the airline industry, safety is not only important; it is the key determinant driving the operation. In many other organizations, however, safety is a much more subtle concept. "Safety is good business" is an airline motto. Safety has both tactical and strategic implications - on a daily basis, there may be costs associated with erring on the side of safety, but in the longer term, the costs of a fatal crash that kills hundreds of passengers and crew are far higher than the resources necessary to be "safe". Put simply, we cannot afford to be unsafe. Safety, however, is not a one size fits all idea. We each have differing views of what safe enough is or is not. Rather than try and define safety, let's all agree to operate in accordance with a standardized set of concepts: First, understand and ensure every member of your team understands the concept of Normalization of Deviation. Understanding is the beginning of wisdom. Armed with knowledge, our team is far more likely to see the implications of their actions in light of a "safe enough" process. Next, develop and be guided by a defined set of metrics to detect deviations from standard practice. In 1992, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) published what has become a seminal study on safety (NTSB/SS-94/01). In their report, the NTSB sought to determine common factors that led to aircraft accidents by analyzing 37 major accidents occurring from 1978 to 1990. Their findings are legendary in the aviation industry, and have great relevance for any people-centric organization. By identifying warning signs that precede an incident or accident, the NTSB created a framework for classifying and quantifying - the future! These "Red Flags" fall into 7 basic categories. (Conflicting Inputs/Preoccupation/Not Communicating/ Confusion/Violating Policy or Procedures/Failure to Meet Targets/Not Addressing Discrepancies) Failure to monitor/challenge decisions was pervasive in most of these accidents. In the accidents studied, there were never fewer than 4 Red Flags/accident with an average of 7 Red Flags/accident! Moreover, we find very similar statistics for healthcare and other team-centered, high-risk organizations. Combinations of Red Flags predict accidents/breakdowns before they occur! First order of business is to train our teams to be cognizant of and recognize Red Flags unique to your organization. Most importantly, when they occur, each and every team member must communicate their presence, thereby mobilizing the team's synergistic power to correlate data from multiple sources - and act before an accident occurs. When seeing a Red Flag, speaking up is essential - we cannot know if this is the first or last Red Flag in an accident sequence. Lastly, develop an audit process to ensure that safety standards are not only documented but are actually implemented and faithfully practiced. This ability to know one's self is the critical last step in any safety process. If discrepancies are detected, analyze not only what but "why" to ensure process changes correct back to standardized operation. Three weeks after the Challenger explosion, Bob Ebeling and fellow engineer Roger Boisjoly secretly relayed to NPR the events of the night of the 27th of January 1986. They blamed themselves for not having done more to stop the launch. But, Bob and his fellow engineers did all they could to prevent the Challenger disaster. Roger said of that night, "we were talking to the right people. We were talking to the people who had the power to stop that launch." They chose not to do so. Now, 30 years later, Bob spoke again to NPR and still holds himself accountable for not stopping the launch. In truth, Bob did his job. It was a system and process failure that led to the disaster. Normalization of Deviation had become standard practice. Ensure your organization never goes where NASA went that fateful night. Captain Alan Price was a founder and leader in Delta's Human Factors Program (Crew Resource Management - CRM), and led "In Command" for five years before becoming Chief Pilot for Delta's Atlanta pilot base. He is a retired USAF Lt. Col. and Command Pilot, and works with airlines, hospitals and other team-centered organizations to utilize teamwork, communication, and leadership skills to serve the passenger, the patient - the customer.

Сокращение спрэда Brent-WTI убивает нефтяную промышленность США

Оператор крупнейшего нефтеперерабатывающего завода на побережье Атлантического океана Energy Solutions чувствовал себя достаточно уверенно в прошлом году, рассуждая о перспективах привлечь $272 млн в ходе публичного размещения.  Однако, в сентябре компания благополучно эти планы угробила. Кроме того, уволила десятки рабочих, поставив знак вопроса в отношении пенсионных взносов и отложив ряд запланированных довольно крупных проектов.
