On the New York Times website, there’s a section called “Corner Office – Conversations about leadership and management“. The conversations about leadership and management come from all kinds of industries, which makes the section so inviting.
I have a stack of them to read, all Instapapered for later reading. Here’s one from over a year ago: “The C.E.O. Must Decide Who Swims“, and includes this quote…
“…if you really care about somebody, you give them constructive feedback. And if you don’t care about somebody, you only say positive things.”
Applicable, no matter the date.
