BLUF: IMHO, the best thing about Manager/Career Tools is the constant emphasis on actionable advice. Today, I had an experience of the opposite kind: an empty article on an important subject.
Has anybody seen this: http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2012/11/when_your_manager_is_afraid_of.html ?
I began reading the piece with highest expectations to find useful advice: It has been a pattern in my career that I apparently intimidate my managers with my energetic drive, creative spirit and frequent inability to take 'no' for an answer (unless the verdict is explained and backed up by reasoning, of course).
Halfway through the article, I really liked how the story was told. I could absolutely relate to the character and her experiences. I was eager to finish reading.
In the end, I was completely disappointed. Complete lack of actionable advice.
That wouldn't have happened with Manager/Career Tools! Maybe 'My Manager Is Afraid Of Me' would be an interesting candidate for a future cast?
What do others think?
