When I am boss, I will never...

A piece of advice I read in a recent issue of Real Simple magazine was to record workplace frustrations in a journal. Not only would this provide relief, but presumably some day when I am boss, it will remind me of employee perspecties.

So. In that vein, when I am boss, I will remember that my employees don't always make arbitrary deadlines because they are too busy playing catch up and putting out fires in the normal course of business to actually have time to develop a long-term vision. That might me than as boss, I should think of new ways of organization and labor division so that my employees can work more efficiently. Or, of all the tasks I throw out at them, prioritize.

What will you never do when you become the boss?

Hi Alfredo. Not sure how much I can help given that I am across the Pacific Ocean, but would love to attend.
