What Would You Do if You Were Prince Harry?
Prince Harry's naked tushie has caused a lot of controversy since it was recently plastered all over the Internet. As we all know (or should know) once something is posted on the Internet, it's there forever. That means, if someone posted pictures of you rocking your birthday suit, chances are someone will see it - even if you try to take it down. And, unfortunately, that someone could be your boss or potential employer. Fortunately for Prince Harry, he will receive a slap on the wrist and a whole lot of attention, but he won't lose his job (In fact, he was actually offered a job!). However, the rest of us wouldn't be as lucky. So, what if this happened to you? How would you explain this to your boss (or potential employer)? Tell us what you think in the comments section below!

It's these soft skills that separate the good employees from the great ones. Executives, managers, and other leaders within an organization keep this in mind when interviewing job candidates and reviewing the performance of current employees.
