Everyone Has Had A Terrible Boss

I’ve had them, and I’ve been one… but, bosses are only terrible if you allow them  to be.

Here’s my framework for managing my manager, improving my personal happiness, and becoming a better delegate.

Management 101: Define Projects Using Five Variables

  • Time
  • $
  • Quality/Scope
  • Expertise (who performs the work)
  • Risk Tolerance (are we ok if this doesn’t work out?)

These five dimensions help root my work in clear, measurable expectations. It lets me define goals, but is also a vital tool for discussing realistic goals with my bosses.
