A bigwig at our custodian basically told me I need to do it. He is in the same boat, optimizing service with the production mindset.

I may just pitch doing the green belt to start, with the intention of letting it expire.

Color me corrected.

Napa, I got my Kendrick/Top Dawg tix today. So that should be decent.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.

Hi.
Hey buddy

My boss was not sold on the green belt. Wanted to see the business case but agreed that it would be a non-renewed certificate if I did it with Villanova at all.

Iím not upset about it. There are other ways to get the certification.

So I’m mostly through the “one on one” manager tools podcasts. I am doing monthly meetings with my boss currently. I broached the idea of going weekly and shorter duration today, and we are giving it a shot. I don’t have any direct reports, so this is pretty much the only way for me to try it out.

My boss seemed amused more than anything. Told me I need a hobby, if this is my after hours listening (not in a shitty way).

If he even takes it half serious I think he'll see the dividends. He'll be more clued in with less need for "drop ins" by either you or him. It'll be an interesting thing seeing it implemented from the "bottom up."

from the paper today:

Hilton Magic: Iowa State has the No. 1 home-court advantage in the nation according to Ken Pomeroy’s measure — an impressive feat considering this spot usually goes a team that has more of an elevation advantage. Over the last 60 home and road conference games, Iowa State is also No. 1 in the nation in foul differential at home (negative-5.4 per game).

Sounds like they're already looking for excuses as to why they lose tonight.

you're damn right i am. but i think it would be hard for any iowa state fan to deny that its crowd boos every foul call against it as though it was a tragedy of shakespearian proportions. i can understand the occasional booing of a call, but iowa state boos every single foul call against its team. every one. that crowd thinks iowa state hasn't committed a foul since 1934.

Kansas won because thatís the natural order. The home crowd was soft and didnít bring the energy like normal either.

The COO just sent out an email announcing shorter weekly one on ones for everyone, thanking me for bringing the idea to the table. I am guessing this spreads to other areas of the firm shortly. Manager tools, man.
