It’s Time to Build a Better Boss
Yes, many of us have thought about that a bunch of times, and many organizations have discussed it, but I don’t know any that have gone to the steps that Google has done to actually try and do it. The article in the NY Times, Google’s 8 Point Plan, is interesting on so many different levels. Take a read, and think about what you could do in your own organization, to help defeat the Peter Principle and find ways to create a better boss for everyone. I liked the quarterly reviews, I liked the data gathering, I liked how they were thinking about the reasons people left organizations, but most of all, I liked the fact that Google was trying so hard to do something so wonderfully good for their employees.
