People Herding

I hope my blog readers are enjoying the break from the writings that have no effect on the world.

I'm learning how to lead people. They tell me sometimes you have to talk to them. It'll never work, me talking to people, why even bother? I think we have to learn a new way of leading, where all feedback, instructions, delegation, etc, etc, is done thru e-mail and instant messages. Please don't make me start talking to people. Please.

Leadership should be left to people persons, and that is not me. I'll be in charge of keeping Dogs happy, okay.

Love the Dilbert comic. I agree, I love being in my cube all day with no meetings. However, I can't avoid occasional drop-by's. Ah well, it's an evil to be endured in the corporate world...

I am a small business owner. I find the best way to lead is by listening. A trait our wacked out loser-in-chief hasn't figured out yet, eh?

Oh, I'm feeling your pain, brothah.

Channel your inner diplomat and talk TO people, not at them. Mutual respect will ensue.

No. It's not really that easy. But it's a good start.

You'll be fine...the way always shows the way.
