All you ever need to know about management was taught to me by an old school Personnel Director at Lever Bros. Port Sunlight works:

- All companies are run by their middle managers. If they don't want it, it won't happen.

- You'll never achieve anything in management unless you realise that some people have jobs and others have careers and what is important is to recognise the difference between them.


Pretty philosophical about it today, Chris.


There are clearly some bad managers, so by definition, there must be some good ones.

There's some tautology going on here as well. If you don't need a manager to deliver good results, that's because you are a good manager yourself.
