On Freedom

I’ve decided to keep this blog focused on leadership (and perhaps grammar), and I’ve started a different blog on inbound marketing. Why? Because I’m finally free to post my actual thoughts.

I couldn’t always post my ongoing leadership thoughts because I had to be very careful that none of my geeks or anyone else in my firm thought that my posts were real. Somehow, if there was even the slightest hint that one of my geek constructs was based in real life, paranoia ensued. Perfectly understandable, but very limiting to my blog!

Oh, my posts still won’t be based on actual geeks I know or who have reported to me, but I expect that no one will be suspicious now. As such, I can let my thoughts on leadership and leading geeks “flow” more readily.

I’m excited to see what will come.

  1. Oh Jenn. Jenn, Jenn, Jenn. Perhaps you could be a little more forthcoming and reveal exactly what brought about the career change? The real reason? Clearly you enjoy sitting on a high horse and judging others, but why not tell everyone what a terrible Geek Leader you actually were? That you only ever passed the buck. That during system crashes went out for lunch while Your Geeks slaved away and fielded Help Desk calls? That you constantly hid in your office so as not to deal with The Users? Never saw a post on any of that. Hmmmmm.

  2. Oh, I know. I was simply awful. I never hung out in the Help Desk area or brought any of them coffee. I never rebuilt the Exchange message stores twice in a week or pulled 5 all-nighters in 8 days. I never actually SPOKE to any of my geeks or made announcements to the firm. I just make up this entire blog. Simply horrible, isn't it? ;)
