I saw this story this morning, about Columbus Day protests in Colorado. At the risk of being insensitive, this seems like a complete waste of energy. You can argue the relevance of the federal holiday I suppose. It was 500 years ago, and Columbus didn't really discover America, he simply introduced Europe to it. But what's the point of the protest? Draw attention to behavior we no longer tolerate?

Sometimes your employees may get emotional about past behaviors and decisions. Focus on the present, and commit to a better future with your actions, showing that you will never compromise the integrity of that future.
