Meanwhile I plod on with EVA in easy steps, I reckon I'm about half way with the text but still lots of graphics to do. I'll probably take a break from it this (long) weekend and watch a bit of rugby.
This weeks subject is intervention and that's a characteristic of a poor project manager. They interfere in the work of the team and insist on things being done their way. The team members begin to feel their work is not valued and the team will be weakened. What may, at the time feel like a victory to the project manager, is actually a failure. Team members who have been bruised in this way will become less open, more defencive and resentful.
Lao Tzu tells us:
Weapons are tools of misfortune,
They are not the wise man’s tools.
He uses them only when necessary,
With calm and detachment.
Victorious but without glory.
Those who glorify,
Are delighted in the killing.
Those who delight in killing,
Cannot achieve their ambitions in the world.
