Re: Crowley
@progman2000- Well, what's funny is I believe that she did get a bib but it wasn't the right bib. It didn't let her run with her husband. So not only did she fake a bib, but she kept someone else from having one that could have.

That said, one wonders if a little technology could be applied to this to do "bib exchanges" among the non-elite runners.

Re:After Ballmer: 8 Execs You Love To Hate
Satya Nadella should not follow the footsteps of his elders because that would certainly lead Microsoft to devastation. I think what he is doing is nice, and slow, because he's not taking any chances. But his luck may just run out, and then he'd have to take chances. The greatest risk is not taking any risk at all.

Re: Mayer & Telecommuting
@Broadway0474:

"but it's equally sad that most male execs are simply expected to grin and bear the brutal work schedules."

Do they really have a choice? It is the cost of competitive leadership and an apparent proof that the exec is ready to make costly sacrifices for the corporate interest.

Re: Mayer & Telecommuting
@SF,

"Maybe it also depends on the country. Around here both women and men get the same leave"

I get your point. Equal parental leave for fathers and mothers is a perspective that is not shared by many countries especially where the male position in the labour market is more valued than the female position.

Crowley
Wow.  As a marathoner busting his ass to qualify for the Boston Marathon, my jack$$$ award goes to Crowley.  I know there were scads of people stealing bibs this year, but the fact that these entitled jerks did it makes my blood boil.  In the end, I'm sure he could have gotten her a bib by simply forking over 5 or 10 grand to a charity, and you get some positive publicity to boot - wth?

Ashish, 

Yes. It's as we discussed on David's article about leadership and pizza. Did you see that one? It takes more than giving orders to be a good leader.

Ashish,

Exactly. And this is how once again we found ourselves continuing the topics of discussion that we started elsewhere.

I will not forget about sending you that book. :D

Re: Mayer & Telecommuting
@David, you should start asking that question of more male execs, for sure. There are plenty of people who are pushing for greater work-life balance in the corporate world who are pushing for it for both men and women. It is sad that more often than not only female execs get asked those questions, but it's equally sad that most male execs are simply expected to grin and bear the brutal work schedules.

Re: What no Larry Ellison on this List?
It' a great list but we would be here all day if it was "complete" I could think of many others that would easily make the list. Arriving at a certain level of professional success doesn't always mean that the social skills are intact. That's why they have PR !

David,

Steve Jobs would just have skipped the Whole Meeting entirely and Be Done with it.

He's always been a My way or the Highway kind of guy!!!
