Sorry for disappearing for a while. I was travelling and forgot to say this in my previous blog.
Although not directly related to bosses, I saw this great article Be smarter at work, slack off. It has this gem of a quote:
"The physiological effects of tiredness are well-known. You can turn a smart person into an idiot just by overworking him," notes Peter Capelli, a professor of management at Wharton.
