When The temperature Rises…..

30 Nov

The light dims.  When I ask audiences “Have you ever worked for the manager from hell?” about 40% raise their hands, with entrepreneurs the number is usually closer to 90%.

Try this management development tool on yourself or with some others.  Review your career and identify your best and worst boss.  Jot a brief paragraph (2 – 3 lines) about each.  I do this with management development groups.  With more than five persons’ input summarized in a T chart, the answer is obvious: How They Make You Feel.

For the past several months the Sunday NYTimes has been running a column in the Biz section entitled The Corner Office.  Go to “No Ranting and Raving Permitted” for a great article on the power of emotion and entrepreneurial culture.
