Trying to pull back control from the mayhem of early November when Second-in-Charge and I made careless error of actually trying to do our own jobs (ie: "little things" like next year’s supplement brochure and year end) but resultantly took our eye off balls that should belong to the middle management.
Such a stunningly poor performance from them this month. Really shocked us. The mess that can be caused in less than three weeks is amazing, with sub-quality work whizzing back to us and adding to the pile of already late-running work. Spending day at home analysing work, in order to trace back where problems stem from. Also spend time reflecting. Want to be very clear in my own mind what I personally want to get out of business. When it comes down to it, I realise it should be the same – or similar – to all the staff: money; enjoyment of work; pride in work;fun at work; reasonable stress levels and not having to worry if I am ill, on holiday or need to take time off.
Doesn’t seem that unreasonable, does it”
