The Headline is of course tongue-in-cheek... but has anyone else made the experience that the more you spend time listening to MT and following their advice, the more you see bad management all around you? For me, it is becoming borderline frustrating. How you you cope with this?
I have many examples. Some amusing, some sad. Like this recent O3 conversation with my manager via teams. I let you decide if it falls into the amusing or sad category:
Me: your camera seems not working.
Manager: oh let me turn it on, forgot. (Turns on the camera)
Me: Whatcha doing? Cooking lunch?
Manager: yeah... the time during or O3 is the best time for me to cook lunch. All other meetings I have today are too important and I would get too distracted
Me: ahh I see. Nice! Very clever. As they say: it is all about priorities...what's for lunch?
Manager: Spagetti with meat sauce.
Me: that sounds nice. Should we get going with our O3? So the pasta will not overcook.
Manager: Yes, good idea... why don't you start... I have nothing prepared...
And while I talk... the pasta boils over.....
