The Juggling Koan
- What do I do when I have more work than I can handle?
- How do I get other people to help with my workload?
- What is the answer to the Juggling Koan?
Mark recently blogged with our first ever management koan, "What Would An Effective Manager Do?" It was clearly a big hit - we got 45 responses within 2-3 days.
Clearly, many of you wanted to know what the answer is, and that's great - the burning desire to get better is at the heart of all good managers. Maybe we should say "many of US" wanted to know, since even Mike posted a comment wondering about the answer! (Mark thinks that was just him being nice to everyone, putting everyone out of the misery of waiting.)
So, this is a first for us, a show driven completely by a blog post and its response. In fact, we had to juggle a lot to slide it into the lineup, and it's certainly unusual for us to record a show and put it right up on the site.
And what's the show about? Well, don't you want to know what an effective manager would do? We're going to learn the right way of thinking on this issue, and then we're going to review every unique blog comment and provide insight as to what works and what doesn't.
