Other articles in Management-Issues that I've already read and can recommend:
- Incompetence at the Speed of Light - "Genghis Khan managed to rule over half the known world without once having a conference call or conducting a webinar. He did it all with a system of flags and horsemen. So why is it that most companies today, with more ways to communicate then ever, do such a lousy job?"
- Satan's Training Brochure - "I've always had this feeling that some Middle Management behaviors are too wide-spread and identically performed in too many companies to simply be coincidence."
- Santa's Performance Review - "I don't know about you, but I hate writing performance reviews. Then I got to thinking that some are harder than others. Take Santa Claus - what would you say about him?"
- Big "L"s and little "l"s - "How do you differentiate between those who are leaders by title and those who are leaders because they actually behave like leaders? Don't make me name names to prove they're not the same thing. Just open a newspaper."
