I've enjoyed reading your blog the last few months. I am however left wondering - where do these people work? After reading about the interactions your readers have with their leaders, I am stunned. Am I this sheltered? Do managers this clueless and/or evil really exist?
They do exist.
I don't believe any of the managers I've written about here are evil. They are, however, often incompetent, weak, or clueless.
They're also what inspired me to pursue the career path I ended up pursuing.
If you haven't encountered them, count yourself very lucky.
