This bread is much more sour in flavor. Fantastic!

I used a recipe from the King Arthur flour website for a long proof extra sour taste.

I'm a very popular person in my house today.

Playing with sourdough for the first time.

+Angie Person I totally cheated and seeded my starter with a little store-bought yeast, so I didn't have to wait as long. Super lazy. ;)

Family are definitely huge fans. I almost offered my husband a cigarette with the noises he made consuming a piece I'd grilled for him. Lol.

Lol... Attended a conference last year where this guy did a feature in the closing event. A perpetually accelerating vw or something. The graphics and numbers were awesome on the big screen... Been meaning to check his site to see if it is available there.

Advancement — in terms of title, pay and recognition — is inextricably tied to people management.

But isn't it time we asked whether this actually make sense? People management, after all, is a specific skill set. Not everyone has it. Not everyone wants to develop it. And there’s a strong case to be made that shunting top performers — contributors with valuable expertise all their own — down a one-size-fits-all management track is hardly the most effective use of company resources.

Why is “management track” still synonymous with success?
