Re: I've had a boss like that

It's a shame that quite a number of managers never learned that simple adage: praise in public, "discuss" in private (with "discuss" having values ranging from "ask questions" to "give a right Royal b*llocking").

I've had the pleasure of some very good examples, and they stay with you when you get to that position yourself (at which point you should have also encountered examples of what to avoid).
