I retired from (and was retired from) most aspects of organizational life Saturday. That took adamant superiors 53 years to accomplish.
I was replaced (fired) as co-facilitator of a dynamite, leadership development program for Parkies named PD SELF. Simultaneously, I resigned my other duties with the Parkinson’s Foundation. The parting was far more amiable than these ruptures tend to be.
All cards on the table face up…..……
I can be a Hotspur to manage, especially when it comes to things really, really dear to me.
Just ask my former newspaper bosses: Rich Oppel, Mark Ethridge, Mike Pate, Frank McComas, Bill Baker, Clark Hoyt, etc., etc.
I will continue my wonderful association with fine Florida newspaper editors, tend my blog www.shufflingeditor.com, work for my church and contemplate a book. Its tentative title is “Taming Hotspur Subordinates.”
