The Execupundit – Michael Wade – has compressed the groaning shelves of management tomes from your local bookshop into one pithy post.

  • I am sometimes under enormous pressure from upper management; pressure that you seldom see. Anything that you can do to make my job easier will be greatly appreciated.
  • If I do something dumb or am on the verge of doing so, please tell me. Don’t hint. Tell me.
  • I expect you to take initiative. If you keep bouncing things to me, I’m going to wonder why I have you around.

350 words; a lifetime’s distilled experience. Superb!
