Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Emily Jarvis's blog post 'How do you deal with a workplace bully?'
"OK, haven't weighed in lately but this one really sticks in my craw. Megan's comment is spot on. I too retired as others have said in here to get away.  I too once love my job. The person who caused the most trouble sucks up to…"

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Joshua Millsapps's blog post 'Owning up to your mistakes'
"And if you don't have a plan to fix it, remember the second part of this scenario is to be able to ask for help.  Sometimes we can't do everything by ourselves."

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Joshua Millsapps's blog post 'Owning up to your mistakes'
"I actually had that question posed to me in an interview once.  Do you own up to your mistakes?  Yes.  But I remember thinking it was such an odd interview question.  It made me think about my integrity and how I wanted people to…"

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Dave Briggs's blog post 'Digital Literacy'
"Great post.  I think being netsmart is about equal to being street smart.  In some ways I see it as being self patrolling as when people post some things, others say, "Whoa, let me check that," and add comment if it isn't…"

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Jaime Gracia's blog post 'The Acquisition Workforce: Are We Going Backwards?'
"Well, speaking from my experience, government has rules in place that supposedly help maintain a better workforce.  I worked as a purchasing agent and contracts administrator for many, many years in private sector, negotiating multi million…"

"Good info to know."

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Nicholas Charney's blog post 'Thoughts on the disruptive web'
"We wanted to go wireless so asked our IT to give us a recommendation for equipment to install.  We ordered it and I am told we will be wireless soon which will free up work space and give us options to move around and meet.  Work on the…"

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Jim Elliott's blog post 'Getting Exercise Jumping To Conclusions'
"Seems to me I have seen a lot of this during meetings lately when people are talking about what to cut for sequester.  I kept thinking they must be hearing something different from what I was. Great post.  Will check out the book."

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Emily Jarvis's blog post 'Sequestration Fixes Could Still Hurt Feds? What Are They?'
"I find it amazing that people don't say, "Hey, we had a surplus a while back.  Something was working then, let's go back to that!""

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Kristina Marzullo's blog post 'It’s a Fiscal Cliff! It’s a Sequester! It’s Ineffective Leadership?'
"Glad to hear you say that Alan because I have been thinking that a petition needs to start circulating for a bill called the Simple Law.  All laws should be passed with one (1) point that is being made and language should be meaningful to Joe…"

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Sterling Whitehead's blog post 'Adjust Your Budget to the Sequester'
"Wow Julie.  I have planned on the possibility of my son moving home with his family.  They keep cutting his hours and he keeps fighting with them to get them back.  Someplace along the line as this economy tanks, they will have to do…"

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Joshua Millsapps's blog post 'Recruiting for company culture'
"I have interviewed with companies that did psychological tests as part of interview, handwriting analysis, interviewed by whole department for fit.  I have to say that I was much happier working in those places when I was hired because the…"

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Emily Jarvis's blog post 'Government Competitions Redux: TopCoder and the Power of Crowdsourcing - 1'
"I knew we had started some competitions but wondered how that worked.  Great concept."

Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Dannielle Blumenthal's blog post 'Excuses, Excuses'
"Type Sabotage into the GovLoop search and there are quite a few.  The link to the original reference is cubicle version which links you to the original text from the CIA.  It really is fun."
Feb 27, 2013
Janina Rey Echols Harrison replied to Dannielle Blumenthal's discussion 'How Could Federal Employees Help Avert or Mitigate the Effects of Sequestration?'
"I brought this up just recently.  Someone bought a standup desk for $1000 and people are being furloughed because their group doesn't have funds.  Going to cause bad blood."
Feb 27, 2013
Janina Rey Echols Harrison commented on Emily Jarvis's blog post 'Know your rights if you're furloughed - Sequestration Deadline Approaching'
"Well, this discussion did get fun.  We can't continue to not collect sufficient revenue and continue to be involved in war and expect to get out of this situation.  Sequester won't get more revenue or get us out of war,…"
