I have been listening to MT for over a year. I try to develop myself by reading Fortune, Wall Street Journal and several other periodicals. I am a big fan of GTD and try very hard to implement this program into my professional life. I am a engineer and a manager. My last boss was an engineer and while not perfect did understand the technical aspect of the business. All of my current bosses are not engineers but are finance people. I have problems communicating to them the engineering aspects of the company but my biggest issue is their lack of professionalism. They (including the CEO) come into meetings with spiral bound notebooks and a Holiday Inn pen and often make jokes about my Moleskine notebooks and simple Parker pens. They've never heard of GTD and believe that the only way to motivate anybody is through fear. I am routinely told by my boss that my job is on the line; however whenever there is a technical problem or a employee issue that requires a bit of maturity he comes to me. I am looking for a different situation but need some assistance on how to deal with a boss who is unprofessional and often makes fun of you (in front of others) for trying to be professional. I would appreciate any assistance.
