There was a nasty fight at my team meeting. The boss got yelled at by the rest of the team members.
Of course the first reaction of upper management was did Beakerkin start this fracas. In this case I was at home nowhere near this fight. No doubt had I been there I would have somehow made matters worse.
A great leader inspires their charges. My boss is lazy and ignorant and our numbers reflect her lack of effort. If our procedures require a sign off and our leader is out or doing extraneous work our numbers suffer.
In the real world sometimes we fail. The reasons for failure are varied. However, to fail because of lack of effort, poor planning and putrid training is not acceptable. In our case we are being blamed for
the actions of a lazy incompetent. I pointed out that I am happier with a manager who is not as well
regarded. I pointed out when she fails it is not for lack of effort or because she didn't seek help.
In the real world people do fail. However, to fail because of poor effort is inexcusable.
