Sivaji - The boss

Amidst all the cacophony of SMS polls, Amitabh vs Rajini, media frenzy, bulletin board tiffs..I only hope Sivaji becomes a Chandramukhi and not a Vikram or Baba!

Thalaiva,by God we need a good movie!

Though I usually hate bosses and want them to fail, in this case I will make an exception.

What they dont teach at Business School

Have you noticed:

* When lost for words in a conference call, the Smart-Alec would collect his thoughts and start by saying "Oh! I never realized I was speaking to a muted phone"

* When Smart-Alec gets a company-wide mass mailer asking for some specific help, he would "Reply-all" knowing very well that the rest of the organization didn't reply as they don't care or they don't have a clue what it is it about.

* When Smart-Alec goes for a large group lunch at the office canteen, he would ensure that he is last in the line for buying coupons

Senior management take the simplest tasks, claim credit for successes and blame the rest for unexpected outcomes, accumulate stock options, give lengthy counseling sessions and pose for photographs in annual reports.
