Management Courage

by Margaret Morford, subtitled Having the heart of a lion.

Six principles

1. Be painfully honest
2. Never treat people identically
3. Don’t use individuals or policies as a crutch
4. Ask for and give real feedback
5. Take the blame
6. Leave soul-sucking situations

Favorite quote (so far, still reading and digesting);
” There’s too much democracy because no one wants to make anyone else unhappy.”
Attributed to Tom Rohrs, Senior Vice President of Applied Mat

  1. Thoughts to live by. I like #2 the best. It seems to be counterintuitive for some managers and supervisors who want the easy out of handling everything the same, preferrably with a policy to cover them.
