Fast Company | Escape from the Red Zone

Fast Company offers a powerful article on the state of management and managing in Escape from the Red Zone:

"'Every day I feel like a miserable failure. I work 60-hour weeks. I get no praise. When I told my boss how I felt, he said, 'What are you talking about? You exceed my expectations. I couldn't be happier. You'll be making more money than you ever dreamed of.' When I told my husband about it, he said, 'He doesn't realize how big you dream.' I don't get it. It just doesn't add up. My husband says, 'Your life is so good. Why do you feel so bad?''"
