Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We are only as strong as our weakest link

This very morning I used exactly the same words in a discussion with my boss. He wanted to spend the education-budget only for hist 'best' people. I was the only one in the 20-people-meeting to have second thoughts. Bribes from the boss for the good ones, competition among co-workers to recieve bonus and status, breaking solidarity , bringing down motivation for the most and ending with low efficiency and unhappy people and frustrated boss. Yeah,  I can forget promotion for this year.
