Great kid's movie; anything important in there
about life? ...
... a good path, a good end, and a good conscience?  

Perhaps the best revelation of modern game theory and organizational economics is that productive labor relationships only work well over a long-term, good-faith pathway.  The participants must get to know and trust each other. As in a marriage, the employer and employee are motivated to do the right thing not because of an immediate reward or simple self-interest but because their values and goals are aligned, they anticipate remaining together for the long haul and achieving good outcomes.  There's an issue of mutual conscience that is satisfied in such a relationship.

From the children's story, an
extraordinarily important issue,
and even more so in today's
business environment ...
Simply said, "Can two walk together except they be agreed?"  "Do two people walk hand in hand if they aren't going to the same place?"

Those of us blessed with the opportunity to work are aware of the choices.  We hope to serve with a good heart to a good end, and with people of like mind.  
How is it going with your employer?  Is it taking you where you, in good conscience, want to go?  In it, can you serve well and to good purpose?
