 Five Bosses You Don't Want (Or Want to Be)

This insightful article from Jack Welch, Executive Chairman at the Jack Welch Management Institute at Strayer University which provides students and organizations with the proven methodologies, immediately actionable practices, and respected credentials needed to win in the most demanding global business environments, shares 5 common ways leaders can get it wrong and too often do.

Original Article:

The first and perhaps most frustrating way that some people blow leadership is by being know-it-alls.

If know-it-alls are too in-your-face, a second kind of lousy leader is too remote.

A third category of lousy leadership is comprised of bosses who are just plain jerks—nasty, bullying, insensitive, or all three.

The next type of lousy leadership is at the other end of the spectrum: It's too nice. These bosses have no edge, no capacity to make hard decisions.

This leads us to a final version of lousy leadership which is not unrelated: bosses who do not have the guts to differentiate.

While we wall struggle with various aspects and characteristics of these leadership deficiencies, maybe now is a good time to step back and reflect on your leadership deficiencies. Can you identify yourself in any of these and if so what are you going to do about it?

Beginning January 1, 2013 the IRS set the new rate for mileage reimbursement to 56.5 cents per mile for business miles driven. This was a 1 cent increase from 2012.

This means that you get a legitimate tax write-off for any and all business miles you drive.

That sounds great, except that the ‘catch’ is that the IRS requires you to track your mileage in a specific format. If you don’t they may disallow your mileage.

There are a ton of good articles via the internet on ‘How To Track Your Mileage’ the traditional way. Here are few links to help you out:
