I lost interest…

…in blogging for a while and took a break.

Anders Vesterberg read Behind Closed Doors and has some nice things to say on his blog.

Simple principles

Rothman’s and Derby’s main tenet is that the principles of good management are not that difficult to understand. They discuss for example one-on-ones, portfolio management, feedback, coaching and delegation. The thing is to consistently and reliably perform these practises week after week.

Not that difficult, but not always easy. Systems drive behavior, and it’s not always easy to recognize and counter act the affects when you’re in the thick of it.

I’ll meet Anders in person in January at PSL in Sweden. His review was an awfully nice electronic introduction :-).
