This is my first post and I have been catching up on Manager Tools.
I am not a manager by choice but started my own company and found out one day that I was a manager or maybe all my jokes got funnier.
I cannot tell you how many times while listening to all the podcasts I said to myself - I have heard those words from my father - a VP at a large public company.
So I got the podcast about "Family First". So I started thinking about family and manager tools. I agree with family first and so maybe did my father but I think I was just another employee.
I have heard mentioned on the podcast that these methods work with your family also. I would describe my relationship with my father as "Professional". It is Christmas time and we are not going to get togethor but we will be following protocol by sending appropriate gifts and Christmas day phone call.
Don't worry I am not going to keep whining about my daddy does not love me but I have kids of my own now and I am wondering about applying Manager Tools methods to my family. It did not work for my father. Was it just him and his implementation? Or any hints on using manager tools at home?
