Folders Are Our Friend

Dan Wardby Dan Ward
When I saw the stories about Kris Kobach and his proposed plan as a potential leader of the Department of Homeland Security, my first thought was, “has this guy never heard of a manila folder?”

In case you missed it, Kobach met with President-Elect Trump and was photographed prior to the meeting holding what appears to be his strategic plan for the first year.  Just a guess here, but I assume he did not plan to share his thoughts with the Associated Press prior to his discussion with the PEOTUS.

We in the public relations field often deal with confidential information regarding client projects.  Generally speaking, we try not to walk into a group of journalists while prominently displaying that information.

Kobach’s flub does provide a good reminder for all of us.  If you have information that you would prefer (or which must) remain confidential, secure it before you step outside of your office.

I offer one humble suggestion to Mr. Kobach, if he is chosen to serve. Make a beeline for the DHS office supply cabinet and grab a few manila folders.  Your boss will thank you.
