So now we have “quiet quitting”! Tell me the truth—don’t you find this somewhat ironic with Labor Day upon us?!
There’s the “great resignation,” “the gig economy,” and now “quiet quitting.” All of these seem to me to represent a ferocious amount of self-absorption. Social media are rife with people “escaping toxic jobs” and “exhausting demands.” Most recently someone espoused that a job interview isn’t an “audition” and no one should be “forced to perform.”
I’ve conducted a huge amount of interviewing on behalf of clients and I’ve found that traits such as enthusiasm, energy, a sense of humor, and communication skills can readily be observed or be unseen and absent. And these are not “teachable” behaviors, by and large, but are intrinsic with some people and not others.
My somewhat perverse belief is that many of the people swept up in this euphoria of irresponsibility will wind up in their parents’ basements or on friends’ couches or worse! If you don’t believe you have to impress me with your talents and behaviors, then I don’t believe I have to invest money in you. If you want to “quietly quit” and take my money but not produce a return on the investment, then please quietly leave the premises and don’t come back.
Evidently, we won’t know you’re gone.
Many years ago, walking through a division with a general manager, I asked how things were going. “Not so good since Joe retired,” he said.
“But Joe is sitting right over there as usual,” I pointed out.
The GM said, “I didn’t say he left, I said he retired.”
The difference then was that Joe was fired. But it’s tough to be fired today from our largest industry: Self-Absorption, Inc. Not everyone deserves to celebrate Labor Day.

Meet Me in London: I’ll be hosting a two-day, high-level discussion of likely business futures globally, financial considerations, global passive income, the new realities of sales, new approaches to strategy, and so forth. There will be a limit of eight people. I’ll also conduct a full-day experience for a larger group, probably a limit of 30, for an entire day which will address new approaches to value based fees, the five essential short-term revenue generators, role playing difficult conversations, the advanced Accelerant Curve, and scaling the practice.https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/london/ At the Baglioni Hotel, across from Hyde and Kensington Parks.
Return to Australia: I’ll be making my 19th trip in October, this time to Brisbane, to present a week of unique offerings from passive income and global “reach” to a new strategy approach. Join me and your peers for my latest value to grow your business and decrease your labor facing our “new realities.” There is also certification for a new approach to strategy (about which a publisher has just purchased a book on the topic from me) for the post-pandemic world that already has 60+ practitioners in six countries. There is limited seating capacity. https://alanweiss.com/growthexperiences/australia2022/

Beyond Thought Leadership: I’m bringing six experts and huge successes from five countries, spanning the globe, to a 2.5 session with a series of 90-minute interviews I’ll conduct, plus new IP and case studies. The seventh interview will be with me. Nothing else like this, and it’s far too difficult to coordinate schedules to do it again. So it’s now or never. Learn from your peers how they have scaled their business and built great lives.https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/beyond-thought-leadership/ Two seats remain. W Hotel South Beach, Miami.
Million Dollar Consulting® College: I’ve been asked to run this again, and I miss it, so I’m going to do it on December 13-15 (2.5 days) in Castle Hill, Newport, RI, my usual stomping grounds. The beach houses in the winter are fantastic. There’s a great holiday atmosphere that time of year. It will be on my site next week. I’ll be focusing on what I’ve seen as the critical areas for success: brand-building, accelerating referrals, provocative IP, low labor revenue focus, the post-pandemic lasting realities, and so forth.
The fee is $15,000, which includes lodging, breakfast, lunch, breaks, and one dinner. If you catch me at the bar, it could include two dinners. I’m also going to take time to show how I create this and other workshops, step by step, live or remote. Past grads are welcome to attend for $5,000. https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/million-dollar-consulting-college-2022/
