Tenth Year for Management Blog, Thanks

As we cross into our tenth year publishing Management Skills Blog, I would like to thank all my avid readers.  This year, we also launched the Hiring Talent Blog, to focus on posts specifically related to hiring.  Enjoy the holidays.  I am going to take a brief hiatus until January 2, 2014.

I first published this holiday message in 2005, based on a short afternoon meeting on Christmas eve.

As Matthew looked across the manufacturing floor, the machines stood silent, the shipping dock was clear. Outside, the service vans were neatly parked in a row. Though he was the solitary figure, Matthew shouted across the empty space.

“Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night.”

He reached for the switch and the mercury vapors went dark. He slid out the door and locked it behind.

    Tom: I have come to appreciate your Blog very much. They are short, pithy and specific. You blog is so helpful with practical insights and “scenes” of how to implement Jaques’ work, that I read all of them. I save to a file 3 or 4 a month for reference. It is the only blog I actually read. Well done and keep up the writing. Suggested topics: Handling Promotions. Effectiveness Appraisals and Felt Fair Pay bands. RO and diversity. Coaching versus Mentoring. How MoRs can practice equilibration. How to handle “gaps” in MoR relations of more than level once removed.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2014
