  • Seven lessons of leadership we learnt from The Office | Infinite Ideas
    the company when Andy went off on his sailing trip Though never formally employed she managed to manipulate her way into the company in the final seasons Initially abrasive and rude Nellie softened up and revealed her more vulnerable side As a manager she wasn t much cop but given that she actually turned up for work everyday she did much better than Andy Jo Bennet Played by the fantastic Kathy Bates Bennet is a character who takes no nonsense from anyone Once she s bought Dunder Mifflin she makes sure that productivity in each branch is high This Southern woman is not to be messed with putting Michael right in his place after he attempts to woo her and bring out her softer side Jan Levinson Frequently the butt of sexist jokes and banter in the office and the warehouse Jan was able to rise above and succeed in a man s job Her relationship with Michael Scott could be seen as a faux pas as he was a liability when it came to liaising with corporate However after a successful boob job and leaving Michael she became the leader of her own company and the epitome of the successful self made woman and single mother David Wallace He is a complicated character but we can establish that he really is just trying to do what s best for the business It can t be easy having to manage people like Michael Scott without firing them at the first opportunity However Wallace s plan to usurp Jan with a new employee was not handled well in season three it s always good to give someone the heads up before you interview for their replacement in front of them Wallace also made a bad business decision by hiring Ryan previously an intern at Scranton who had not made a single sale The power eventually got to Ryan s head and he had to be let go However Wallace gained back his credibility after being laid off by buying back Dunder Mifflin from Robert California and reinstating himself as CFO His character arc truly went full circle and he was probably one of the sanest people on the show Dwight K Schrute Dwight is the perfect example of earning your leadership role His first chance as boss is cut dramatically short after he fires a gun in the office However by the end of the show we are really rooting for him to become regional manager of Dunder Mifflin After years of painful pranks from Jim giving himself the assistant to the regional manager title and his lifelong dedication to his job Dwight wanted to die at his desk then quits his job after going over Michael s authority to Corporate he finally becomes the character that could He is the success story of Scranton Whether you think any of these characters actually deserved to be regional manager is up to you They certainly all had a unique style of leadership

  • 7 reasons why Michael Scott is NOT the 'World's Best Boss' | Infinite Ideas
    not define you your Mexicanness defines you In the episode The Convict Michael also tells the office which of the employees has a criminal record and that person then quits Good leaders instil confidence in their employees and make them feel they can share problems in confidence Selfish desires Michael s desperation to be the centre of attention or the joke teller often means that he puts his own needs before those of his employees and the work of the office Frequently targets are missed because Michael has decided to distract the office with his own personal problems Take the episode The Injury for example where Michael demands the office rally around him because he burnt his foot on his George Foreman grill Undisguised hatred of Toby Flenderson Remember that episode where Michael took the office to the beach in an attempt to see who would make a good replacement Well Toby doesn t He had to stay in the office and man the phones while the others had a fun day out That s because Michael develops an intense and irrational hatred of the human resources guy You can t be expected to get on with everyone in your office especially if it s a big corporation with lots of departments However Michael s dislike of Toby progresses throughout the series in an extreme manner Michael does not hide his feelings from his employees or indeed Toby himself If I had a gun with two bullets and if I was in a room with Hitler Bin Laden Toby I would shoot Toby twice Harsh words from a mostly harmless man authenticity needn t mean brutal honesty General idiocy Michael though kind and mostly harmless has no common sense which often means that he is the butt of his employees jokes and can seem to have little control over his office A good manager should know what s going on in their office at all times and not let their employees take too many liberties Work can be fun yes but it should also achieve something Michael famously declares I love inside jokes Love to be a part of one someday which shows just how little idea he has about what his employees say about him when he is not around they are not laughing with him but rather at him Favouritism Michael makes no secret of the fact that Ryan and Jim are his favourites in the office Meredith and Toby on the other hand are frequently on the receiving end of Michael s scathing remarks Dwight constantly strives to be loved but never gets to be seen as cool in Michael s eyes instead becoming his fall guy and wasting career building time on Michael s hare brained schemes Roping in Dwight on ridiculous plans means that less work is done in the office see point 1 Remember when Michael refused to pay for the pizza that he ordered because they wouldn t accept a discount coupon He

  • Basil Bunting on Creative Writing | Infinite Ideas
    a Creative Writing student is a Creative Writing professor Basil Bunting As soon as he arrived Bunting gave interviews to the Victoria Times and The Daily Colonist and at some point in the course of each of them told the reporters that the only thing worse than a Creative Writing student is a Creative Writing professor Perhaps unsurprisingly Skelton accepted this as the personal insult that was probably intended and Bunting was ostracized by the entire English faculty with one or two honourable exceptions He returned prematurely to the UK on the way pocketing a full year s professorial salary for about one third of a year s teaching Hanif Kureishi s cause might not be lost Criticizing creative writing from within can be quite profitable For more information on the life and work of Basil Bunting visit our dedicated site at www basilbunting com Search Recent posts Alice in strategy land by Kate M Santon can help improve your business Career lessons from The Walking Dead be adaptable The pros and cons of self publishing your business book Zombie identification for beginners What would Rick do Ten career boosting tips from The Walking Dead Blog Post Categories 100 Management Models 15 5742 Days 6 Authentic leadership 10 Basil Bunting and A strong song tows us 8 Book publishing 51 Business and finance 128 Classic Wine Library 8 Codebreaking our future 6 Current events 37 Entertainment 39 Football Business 9 Game of Thrones on Business 22 Implementing ISO 9001 2015 5 Lifestyle 43 Nine visions of capitalism 14 Publishing for business 4 Sherry 6 Spirits distilled 8 The corporate wellness bible 1 The Diversity Dashboard 7 Uncategorized 4 Wine and spirits 30 Working With The Walking Dead 3 Archive Select Month April 2016 1 March 2016 2 February 2016 3

  • Bunting and Biography | Infinite Ideas
    is just 64 pages long and heavily illustrated is embedded in its subtitle Alldritt s was in fact the first proper biography but it is so heavily marbled with rumour and speculation that it is almost worthless It was reading Alldritt s book which if anything damaged Bunting s reputation that stung me into writing A Strong Song Tows Us More important Hofmann writes that I pay lip service to Bunting s personal opposition to biography and that I go so far as to borrow the five parts of Briggflatts for my narrative structure That often expressed objection is however compromised by Bunting s full participation in the publication of Jonathan Williams s Descant on Rawthey s Madrigal which told his story up to the mid 1960s by his biographical introduction to the poems of Joseph Skipsey in 1976 in which he confesses to having sought out Skipsey s surviving relatives for their memories and by the fact that the subtitle of Briggflatts itself is An Autobiography Bunting was not above using biography in pursuit of what he saw as a good cause He did this because he recognised that the way to interest people in the work of a neglected poet is to tell his story My borrowing from Briggflatts was intended as a courtesy and recognition of Bunting s ambiguous relationship with biography Hofmann doesn t seem to be too comfortable around ambiguity He chides me for not telling readers whether Bunting was arrested in Paris in 1923 for biting a policeman s nose or for kicking him in the pants Nobody knows and as the gritty wanderer of The Bench would have been the first to insist it really doesn t matter For more information on the life and work of Basil Bunting visit our dedicated site

  • Bunting's anniversaries | Infinite Ideas
    And then Keith Alldritt s imaginative reconstruction of Bunting s life came out in 1998 and in my view did more damage than good to Bunting s reputation In March this year I noticed another anniversary just as I was finishing the manuscript and putting the final touches to the introduction I realised that it was 100 years to the month since Bunting stood in the Quaker burial ground in Brigflatts for the first time In some ways that is the most important anniversary of all As I wrote in A Strong Song Tows Us it wasn t just Brigflatts sprit of place that buoyed Bunting up through his tumultuous life The clink of its stonemason s chisel shaped his art Meditation in the Quaker meeting house shaped his philosophy His love for the stonemason s young daughter Peggy Greenbank stayed alive through fifty years of separation Faber s forthcoming edition of Bunting s Complete Poems in 2015 will mark the 50th anniversary of Briggflatts appearance and will raise the profile of this extraordinarily neglected poet It s a shame it s at least 75 years too late We can blame T S Eliot for that For more information on the life and work of Basil Bunting visit our dedicated site at www basilbunting com Bunting at Wylam the year Briggflatts was published Search Recent posts Alice in strategy land by Kate M Santon can help improve your business Career lessons from The Walking Dead be adaptable The pros and cons of self publishing your business book Zombie identification for beginners What would Rick do Ten career boosting tips from The Walking Dead Blog Post Categories 100 Management Models 15 5742 Days 6 Authentic leadership 10 Basil Bunting and A strong song tows us 8 Book publishing 51 Business and
