Happy Holidays

The year is winding down. I am tucked away in a snow bunker somewhere in Utah. Management Blog will return January 3, 2019, in its 15th year of publication. For now, a reprise of our Christmas Holiday greeting originally published December 2005.

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.

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.
