My Name is Chris Mansur and I have been listening to your podcasts for the past year now and this is my first post. I work for a large Biotechnology Company headquartered in the SF Bay Area as a Sr. Supervisor for a small group of Engineers that provide a niche set of support services to the site's Automation Engineering Department. I found your podcast and site last year when I felt the need to find a more effective way to prepare and deliver PP&R to my staff. Your series in this area was a tremendous help and I now recommend it to peers in my organization who need help with this most important and commonly ill-planned and executed annual event. I relistened to it again this year.
Perhaps the best thing about your podcast is that it really satisfies my continuous desire to grow and learn about all things management so that I can be the best manager possible for my staff. This need was previously fullfilled by evening course work towards an MBA at Boston College, but that ended 6 years and 4 kids ago. Thanks for helping me become a better manager one 45 minute commute at a time.
P.S. - The Departmental Leadership Team that I am a part of is currently working on setting 2007 Goals and is struggling a bit with the process. Any chance this will be an upcoming podcast? Is there a way to preview the cue of subjects?
