“The upper management team had informed me that an employee that worked for me was a poor performer and would be terminated soon. This employee was clearly displaying mental health issues that were causing problems in the workplace.

This was my introduction to how mental health issues are handled in the USA.”

Octavia E. Butler
“They say detailed news doesn’t matter. Since we can’t change the stupid, greedy, vicious things that powerful people do, they think we should try to ignore them. No matter how many times we’re forced to admit we can’t really hide, some of us still find ways to try. Well, we can’t hide. So it’s best to pay attention to what goes on. The more we know, the better able we’ll be to survive.”
Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents

“Just like delegation, the act of navigating politics in an organization is slippery. The difference between a manager who knows what’s going on in an organization and one who is a purely politically driven slimeball is thin. But I would take either of those over some passive manager who lets the organization happen to him. Politically active managers are informed managers. They know when change is afoot and they know what action to take to best represent their organization in that change.”
Michael Lopp, Managing Humans: Biting and Humorous Tales of a Software Engineering Manager

Michael Lopp
“Remember, managers are hubs of communication (see Chapter 12). The better they communicate across these sphere boundaries, the more people they can communicate with, and the more data they have. This consequently leads to better decision making. Ultimately, stronger communicators make better-informed decisions, and hopefully they are more successful because they waste less time wondering what to do.”
Michael Lopp, Managing Humans: Biting and Humorous Tales of a Software Engineering Manager

“The true proof of what you know is in your action. If you claim you know but your knowing keeps slipping off the sleeves of action, you don't know yet. If you truly know something there will be a medal of action/freedom.”
Seun Ayilara
