Day 243 of Project 365: Type B.

Books on management and productivity tend to leave me cold, but so far I am enjoying Victor Lipman’s “The Type B Manager: Leading Successfully in a Type A World”, especially the following sentence:

What about the absurd sense of humor and off-kilter fashion sense? I hope the author doesn’t forget those.

Tell me about your favorite manager.

  1. My favorite manager is my current one, who trusts me and leaves me alone to get things done 😀

  2. My favorite manager respected me, treated me well, gave me autonomy over my work, gave guidance when needed, and left me alone otherwise
