Can You Rely On Your Boss?

It’s not so important to be able to rely on your boss, it’s VERY important.
i didn't want to

I Didn’t Want to Do It, They Made Me

In other words, it’s not my responsibility, I didn’t want to do it but the boss/company made me. It’s some way of saying it’s not my fault that you have to do this, I can even confirm it is a bull-sheet. I am not taking any responsibility, but passing it to you.
democracy

There Is No Democracy Within Companies

I hope you didn’t think there is democracy within the companies you work for and that we each get a vote on how to do our job. This thing with voting applies merely when choosing a location for the end of the year party, not for serious business decisions.
admit

Admit When You Are Wrong

Yup, Bo$$, admit when you are wrong, especially in front of your subordinates or colleagues. It’s easier to admit it in front of the manager, even if it’s a cautious act – maybe I get away with it, a mistake admitted cuts half the negative impact. Or something like that.
meeting

Let’s Have a Meeting About Nothing

What Can You Do to Be a Productive Manager

If you are not a productive manager, sooner or later your team will be counterproductive and this will affect you and the company.
recommend

I Must Recommend Something Really Cool

In a world full of opinion givers, the best of all is the one who says “I recommend…” without even trying that particular recommendation on themselves.
potty training

Congratulations! Potty Training was Successful

When a child takes his first potty training is a family celebration. You call every relative up to the 4th rank and send pictures/video. WOW!
bad managers

Why Good Employees End Up as Bad Managers?

I have written before that the best thing that can happen to your career is to have a few bad managers. The more the better, just learn something from them
trust your boss

Do You Trust Your Boss?

An essential component is represented by the confidence degree you have in your superior, his “performance” has a decisive role in your career.
change

What Is Change?

Change is not what it may seem and I don’t even want to go near the famous resistance to change that has been part of the struggle.
