Should I be concerned if my leader heavily refers to urban Myers leadership styles and quotes? I recently learned more about him and started reading his book because I needed to understand my current work culture better... and it’s not jibing with me.

I think he’s (Meyer) one of the most scummy type of people out there but your leader may just be a huge college football fan. Most people who are Ohio State or UF football fans idolize him but they can still be good people.

^2nd this he is one of the worst people out there. I’m shocked he is still allowed to coach after the stories that have come out about his assistants the last few years.. But i’m also a jaded Michigan football fan 😅

I’m wary of anyone who uses a sports coach as their North Star...AND quotes them all the time. And Urban Myers? There are so many better choices for people who need sports figures to guide them.

Who?

Our senior creative leadership keep talking about winning Cannes Lions and D&AD pencils but none of them have actually won any since 2007 (that’s 14 years 😭 ) and between all three of them they’ve never won more than a couple of silvers, a couple of bronzes and a couple of in-books (that’s with a combined experience of over 60 years 😭). They have no clue 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭. Tell me something about your agency so that I can feel better about the hell-hole I find myself in🙏

Hi, I'm starting a new job in a few weeks and I haven't jumped ship in about a decade. I'm looking for recommendations of books, articles, and frameworks that can help me prepare.
