A recent complaint we received from a manager:
“I do my job, I get my results, and no one has to chase me down or manage me. Well my employees are also ‘big boys and girls’ and should be able to get results: I pay them top salaries, they were hired because of their competence and expertise, I trust and expect them to get things done.

Many of us are thinking about the New Year that lies now open before us like a blank page, and wondering with what to fill it. Some of us will make New Year’s Resolutions, commitments to new behaviors or habits that we hope will end up filling the page with happiness and peace. The vast majority of those of us who do so will fail. Worse, many of those who do succeed in changing behaviors won’t get a 2012 full of what we hoped, but with more of the stress and strife we’re trying so hard to leave behind.
