The taste of the elixir of life in your kiss
And the intoxication of being drunk in your love

The colours now seem sharper
And the days, longer and fairer

But I have been touched to know
Things can never be the same with or without you
Music can never be any sweeter
Neither can the stars twinkle any brighter

Because the peak just has to be you

Managers sit back and complain about changing into a team’s environment more often when they haven’t directly created the teams they’re assigned to lead — a kind of juvenile response, I think. When a need for teams exists and a manager is asked to lead the effort, well, that’s all part of the job of being a manager. You may feel much of the same stress and confusion that your team members feel during the transition period into teams, but that’s no excuse for adding to the distress with your own bad behavior. When you complain about management above you or grumble over confusion with your own role and when you do little to get the resources your team needs and let everyone know that moving to teams is not a…
