How can I convince my supervisor that this is a good idea? I have tried to set up a time with him every week, and he sticks to it for a while, but it soon goes by the wayside.

As an employee this tells me a number of things that are not desireable, so should I continue to press the point or do you think there are other issues underneath the surface that need to be addressed?

Mark is absolutely right on this one. My boss thought that O3's were cute and said that it would pass when I started doing them. Now he is doing them. Sometimes an example speaks louder than anything else.

Well said. I need to go back and find that podcast, but I think you have just given me the gist of it from what I can see here and in another forum topic where you said almost the same thing.

That is very helpful, thank you.
