It's funny, don't try to talk sense to someone who's obsessed with status. Don't try to explain that a big office or a title or special parking space mean nothing. There is no logical argument that I have seen that will influence that person.

It's like telling a coke addict that cocaine means nothing and is unimportant. So what do you do?

As much as it's not my style, I have to say that the best course is moving on. It's not a debate. A person focused on status cannot be focused on the right things, because their brain is obsessed with it.

In my business, there's only room for doing our best for the client, anything elsevanity, ego, lazinessdepletes and defeats us. So, for me, it's focus on the right thing or nothing at all.

  1. I go to Barry LaBov’s blog for insights I wouldn’t get anywhere else. It’s good for managers who are looking to motivate their employees to do everything they can for their clients. In this case, I think he’s dead-on about client focus. There’s a reason why vanity’s one of the seven deadly sins: it pushes you further away from achieving your goals.
