I'd like to sincerely apologize for my absence from the blogosphere for the past month, but I have a good excuse. I've been busy onboarding my new direct report... all 8lbs. 5oz. of him.
When he reported for his first day, he wasn't dressed in business attire (heck, he wasn't dressed at all!). He sleeps on the job (a lot), never schedules meetings with me in advance (but expects that my door is always open), and he hasn't sent a single email or started a single document yet. Nevertheless, I'm thrilled with his performance and he has great job security.
With that bit of silliness and joy out of the way, stay tuned for more serious blog posts from me in the coming few weeks. In the meantime, Happy Holidays!
