How to Lose Friends and Infuriate People
Interesting list from the Regent Business Review via Fast Company.

I especially like number 13…

“Hold lots of meetings and make sure they have an unfocused agenda. Allow the conversation to meander aimlessly, permitting one tangential comment to give license to the next. Never cut off a rambling participant and if anyone has a good idea, compel that person to assume responsibility for a new committee to pursue the idea. End each meeting with no action items.”

And what about number 9?

“Interpret all suggestions for improvement as personal attacks on your leadership.”

When will we, as leaders, even…no, especially…Christian leaders – realize it’s all about how we treat other people?
