Corporate America sends you their finest rejects.

Corporate flunkies create a toxic culture.

You don’t have to play their game.

Play a different game.

Communicate with your subordinates AND your superiors.

Get the truth from the margins.

Don’t always say what you’re actually thinking.

Become a numbers person.

Save all of your emails.

Start documenting everything you do.

It actually makes a difference.

Find the right mega boss.

Stop bailing out the flunkies.

Don’t do any of this for material gain.
