Tribal Networking

It's Better to Give Than Receive, But What Goes Around Comes Around!™

To forge a virtually cost-free partnership steeped in the spirit of fraternity (or sorority as the case may be) that goes beyond matters of immediate concern. This spirit is best served by fostering a climate characterized by Gotham's mantra. Said another way we are all non-salaried, non-commissioned sales people for each other! Thus, we seek to create a family/tribal environment stimulating mutual growth: business, social, creative, intellectual, artistic, charitable or otherwise. Our endeavors should enrich each participant through altruistic acts undertaken with a genuine concern for the welfare of our fellow networkers and the world.

We bring together service-oriented professionals in complementary fields to share not only contacts, but also ideas and resources. Learn more

One of the driving forces in my life was the lack of direct praise I received from my father.  Yes, his friends told me how proud he was of me, but it was a hollow substitute.   As a result I was determined to share my ample pride with my sons and I think I did a far better job than my dad.   I am so proud of them! That gets me to Chris Wallace of Fox. If only his dad, the famous 60 Minutes out spoken reporter Mike Wallace, were alive to hear his son proclaim "You don't ge...

Terminating Household Employees Tips Ideally, the dynamics between home employees, clients, and any other caregivers is amicable and beneficial to everyone involved. Unfortunately, there are situations where this is not the case. Through the terminations for cause of two home health aides, we have learned what procedures are required by law, as well as steps to make the process as efficient and trouble-free as possible. Client Attitude Clients may be reluctant to fire employees, even when they don’t like them and/or are fully aware that the employee is taking advantage of them. The client may also resist termination because of a strong personal bond with the employee or excessive attachment due to loneliness or diminishing cognitive function. If the client still has sufficient capacity, (s)he needs to agree to the termination. In one case, this took weeks of gentle coaxing by family, attorney, friends and us. Be prepared for a battle. If the client no longer has the capacity to make decisions, the termination decision can be made by a family member or POA. The Importance of Planning An attorney once told us about an employee who was fired at the client’s home, threw herself on the floor, put a hammerlock around one leg of the family’s grand piano, and could only be removed by a team of police officers twelve hours later. Because of the potential for further grief, our guiding principle is to make the termination as clean and clear-cut as possible with no opportunity for further contact between the client and employee. The termination should be planned to achieve the following while conforming to state employment laws and regulations: Least opportunity for the client to reverse the termination and rehire the employee. Least opportunity for the employee to (i) seek re-employment, (ii) sue, or (iii) take advantage of the client in any way. Based on our experience, here is a list (link to tipsheet) of the steps we have taken to ensure optimal results. Legal Requirements: In New York State, employers are required to provide a written letter of termination within five days of the termination date. Be sure to research what laws apply in your state regarding termination. The termination letter can be signed and sent by either the employer or by the employer’s POA. It is advisable to inform the employee in the termination letter of possible unemployment compensation for which they may qualify. The letter can also spell out the terms of any severance pay as well as requirements to qualify for such pay, including releasing the employer from all claims and damages and agreeing to abstain from attempts to contact or visit the employer.

                  The Power of Gotham

                  Here’s a thundering shout out for Corey Bearak, a true friend and embodiment of the Gotham Credo “it’s better to give than to receive and what goes around comes around.”

                   

                  At dinner the other night I asked him for very specific introductions and since then he hasn’t stopped delivering. This is a man who knows the whole world, is eager to share and never stops giving.

                   

                  He’s a gem; if you know him you will no doubt agree, and if you don’t you ought to get to know him! Thank you, Corey.
