Conference Calls - WOT (Waste Of Time)
Why do people insist on waiting for arrivals on conference calls?  I'd get it if they were key players, but when they're not, why have 10 people wait even 5 minutes for someone to arrive?  You just wasted the equivalent of 50 minutes.  Start on time and don...

Management Lesson #241
In my years at the old company I've seen some really good managers and some who quite frankly, I wondered how they tied their shoes in the morning. So I thought I would bestow some words of wisdom from the trenches.   This one from the "I wouldn't do this" ...

Piss Poor Planning
One thing that hasn't changed from one company to the next is the number of people who want to make a fire drill of THEIRS be YOURS.   It amazes me how there are too many people in a company, and at all levels, who want to make their issue yours too. Lesson...
