My boss is difficult. We've all been there! Don't leave, learn to partner with the difficult boss instead. Smile and forge ahead. You won't be sorry.
My blog used to be called "Adventures in Management" because I felt like I spent most of my time moving from one crisis to the next.
I write a lot about how I search for reliable talent. Last month I was on the hunt and was lucky enough to find some solid choices.
I posted an ad recently, one in a long line of many over the years. Thankfully we're growing fast! But, each time I post an ad, I have to try hard to make it super nice. But sometimes I want to get straight to the point, but no! I might hurt someone's feelings. Why is everyone so P.C. anyway nowadays? What happened to tell it like it is? Will I have to tiptoe around your feelings when you miss a deadline, mispronounce something or forget how to spell. Lordy, I hope not!
