    sounds to me like a very political way of saying you suck as a leader/manager, but they want to help you get better.

    Well I'll be gone for the next 3 days becoming better than you.

    Try to forge ahead without me. But when I return, I'll be able to point out everything you are doing wrong, and get this ship back on course, and get you all motivated.

    Manage the change. Don't let the change manage you. A penny saved is worth a gift horse in the bush

    Do you always have to be such a negative smart ass??

    That's not a nice thing to say to MMike. I'll bet he won't add you as a friend on myspace now.

    Is this a poorly disguised "I Rule" thread? Because if it is you should just come out and declare you rule, that way everyone one can shoot you down like they do to The Kadvang.
