The Management Question

Someone I know well was lamenting recently that they would have to do a lot of work when they got home in the evening because they were spending the whole day with their boss.

I think I will therefore say this once more. The only, the only management question worth asking of a subordinate, is this, 'How can I help you do your job better?'

If a day spent with a boss not only fails to help you do your job better, but is so structured that you then have to do the day's work you missed, then something is amiss. Sort it world. Sort it.
