First Reading Segment Instructions 5 A. Kline, Patron Technology I'm glad you like it, Katie! It's so practical and some of it is so obvious. I've had a lot of 'oh right! I knew that and I should be doing that!' moments!

Podcast: When Work Takes Over Your Life 0 A. Kline, Patron Technology https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/worklife-with-adam-grant/id1346314086?mt=2&i=1000409142146 Good podcast about whether tech has made us more productive, how to shut off after work and how to create some balance. Episode notes: “Technology is making it harder than ever to disconnect, but it might be easier than you think. To learn about setting boundaries, Adam talks with entrepreneur Arianna Huffington, leaders who have taken bold steps to ban emails at odd hours in their workplaces, and an FBI hostage negotiator who has surprising advice on saying no.” The WorkLife podcast is great, and there are a bunch of good episodes!

What is your management mantra? 0 A. Kline, Patron Technology As I reread the very first intro segment, I’ve been thinking that no one truly taught me how to manage people and that mirroring others that have managed me may not be my best idea (not because they were bad managers but because they have different style, goals and experiences not to mention emotional intelligence). So who taught you to manage people and what are some pearls of wisdom that they dropped on you that stuck? Do you have management mantras? Please share!
