Yesterday was the kickoff for the two week iteration, and i spent most of the day engaged with the team as we tasked out the work for the iteration. Which is draining, but may actually be better than other days in that it was a single focus instead of switching context ever 30 min to an hour.

It was still a long day, and it had started with a number of work related incidents ... oh, i mentioned that, didn't i.

I'm beginning to feel like i'm giving the company 150% and i need to pull back to 90%. The less than 100% is because one needs reserves for emergencies. Have the past few months been an emergency? I can't tell: stuff going on back in the home office is unclear.

off i go.

I spent a day at a seminar on Disaster Planning (focus on museum collections) and the thing the trainer kept iterating was that and emergency, not handled promptly, becomes a disaster. I'm not quite sure where your entire organization is in the continuum, but it really sounds like your emergencies have coalesced nicely into a disaster by now. ;)

The utter lack of leadership from those who have the position to lead (the VP and the remaining directors) is killing us. The directors (my old boss and the woman) who were laid off a few years ago were the only ones who would advocate any leadership to the VP.

Yeah, it's a disaster all right.

My colleague who is moving on discussed with me how the failure of leadership is a significant factor in his departure.
