TGIF – Boss Report

January 21, 2011 by Bill Bradley

As the week winds down, we wind down with some tidbits for your information, education, health, and enjoyment.

Quote of the Week: “I find it rather easy to portray a businessman. Being bland, rather cruel and incompetent comes naturally to me.”  John Cleese

Humor Break: When properly administered, vacations do not diminish productivity. For every week you are away and get nothing done, there is another week when your boss is away and you get twice as much done.

Stat of the Week: Younger workers (68%) think their bosses are doing a good job as compared to older workers (55%).  Now the question becomes is this because of generational differences … or are older workers on to something? 

Action Tip: If you are unhappy with your boss and plan to stay in your job or at least your organization, read Its Okay to Manage Your Boss: The Step-by-Step Program for Making the Best of Your Most Important Relationship at Work.

Volunteering: Nothing will make you feel better about what you have than helping someone who has less that you.  Help improve the quality of life for seniors who are isolated and struggling with personal loss.  Do an online search for senior services in your county, look on their webpage for volunteer opportunities, use search words “peer counseling”.
