Management by Nagging
Anybody can be a manager! It's easy. Here's how it works:
1) ask somebody to do something
2) come back later. ask them if they did it. if not, ask them if they could please do it
3) repeat step 2 until done
It's kind of sad. Despite the number of books on management and people skills I've read, it seems like in the end this is all I do.
