    I do not have a problem with a potential employer looking at any social media sites or pages that I have. I will, however, draw the line in the sand at providing my password. They do not have a right to ask me for any password at all. I will happily log in to any social media site in front of them so they can see it real time, as I have nothing to hide, but it is irresponsible to ask for, or to give out passwords to anyone. There has to be a better way to handle this.

    Glenn, thanks for this article. This applies in the military, too. I was assigned to command units in which I had not worked in their respective missions. However, understanding the principals of leadership and management and that I was in a continual learning mode I was able to successfully command units and successfully execute the mission. One of the first things I did was to avoid “peeing on the fire hydrant” to establish my position. Everyone in the unit knew the position I held as their commander. Therefore, for the first few weeks I engaged in what is called Leadership By Walking around (LBWA), and not just between 8 – 5 PM. With 24/7 shifts, I observed all shift times and established lines of communication with the shift leaders and operators. This established credibility and respect on both sides. Respect must be earned and not commanded.
