Happy Thanksgiving!

I must admit, I thoroughly enjoyed this article in today's New York Times, which equates the strategies used by a C.E.O. to that of a Thanksgiving dinner orchestrator.

From delegation to the bigger picture (or vision) to conflict resolution tactics, I believe the author was head-on in aligning the positions.

"...First, there should be no gloating over elections won or lost, and no discussion of personal income or investment loss. Give people around you a chance to shine by asking them questions that allow them to express their accomplishments. But don’t ask questions you don’t know the answer to, such as why isn’t Sanjay going to college or what happened to that nice girl your son brought home last year."

I'm off to finish up my favorite soup for tonight's festivites: Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup.

Happy Thanksgiving!

P.S. I know it's a lost cause... but E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!!!
