Good points, David. I have had good and bad managers. Of course I prefer “Moses Managers” or somewhere between the two leadership styles but sometimes there is no choice. I’ve have always tried to make the best of any situation and for the most part I’ve been lucky considering I was in the corporate world for 40+ years.
What’s fun is most of the managers I have had in the past are connected to LinkedIn. It’s interesting to see where they are now and my favs seem to be doing well. In fact, I got birthday wishes from 2 of my prior managers.
