I like to broaden my horizons

Two new books came from Amazon today, both of which I purchased to help myself understand corporate life a little more.

I’m starting with “The One Minute Manager.” A quick read, but it doesn’t require the same level of detail or number of examples as some others (Dale Carnegie over-uses the examples, IMHO, but hey, whatever works, right?). Quick, easy to understand, and direct in it’s message, I have half a mind to buy a copy for most of the managers I work with.

And now it’s crystal clear to see who’s using it and who isn’t, and how it impacts me.

Now to apply what I’ve learned….

I have another quick read for tomorrow night as well. Or maybe for tonight after some WoW….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
