Robin Michel Around the Web

A few comments I’ve recently left on other websites:

1. The Most Frustrating Email in the World (LinkedIn)
You are so right! As managers, we often forget that our staff typically reads more into our emails than we intend. A good manager never unwittingly instills apprehension in his team.

2. What's for Dinner? (National Retail Federation)
Here's another reason the Cheesecake Factory ranks so well: as Atul Gawande reported in 2012, the company has perfected the science of food retail efficiency: each store throws away no more than 2.5% of its leftovers. Wow! Not only is the food tasty and the portions generous; the business is also sound and savvy.
