Tom is proud to be included among the honorees on this list: The Top 50 Social Employee Advocacy Leaders (SEAL) on Twitter. We think it's a great accomplishment for a thinker born before the baby boomers to be in the forefront of an issue born with the Millennials.
Summary to a colleague of my recent 15-minute speech ("pep talk"): Don't worry about '21st century leadership' (my assigned topic). If you are just decent to people, listen instead of talk, respect and encourage them, are religious about 'managing by wandering around,' most things will work out.

I have been tweaking and twisting the attached document. Here's the latest.
The post Management: The Arrangement and Animation of Human Affairs in Pursuit of Desired Outcomes appeared first on Tom Peters.
