The lights went out and where the office had hummed with the sound of printers, faxes and servers there was now no noise. The robotic supplementary air conditioners for the computer room stood motionless, their great dalek like arms listless by their sides. An almighty crash from the conference room interrupted the peace as a chair was slammed against a wall and the door thrown almost off its hinges. Sagittarius boss had clocked the pig picture implications of the power outage and had a fire to fight.

Actually, if truth be known, I hadn’t seen him so animated in weeks. Grand visions, change and problem solving had given way recently to day to day operational concerns and that, for Sag boss, was like putting a fence where he could see it.On my first day at work with Sag Boss, I asked how he was ... polite conversation ... His response? A huge grin and the comment ‘Up to my a$%^ in alligators.’ It wasn’t a complaint. Sag loves to be busy, but not busy for the sake of being busy, busy in making a difference busy. In the 5 years that I worked for Sag Boss I shared his visions, struggled to apply the missing detail to his ideas and watched as he stood up for all that he believed in and all that the company that we were stood for. Often this was done in complete contravention of what had been handed down by the MotherShip as a “business decision” and often at a large personal cost to himself. Ethics, Integrity, Honesty and Fairness were, to him, values which could not be compromised. During those five years I worked hard, but was rewarded with constant feedback, support and independence. At no time did he ever fail to give credit for work presented to the senior management team that I had completed. At no time did he ever fail to support me. As a result my personal growth and creativity flourished.Sure, we worked well together, but not all employees agreed with me: Sag Boss did not work well with employees who required constant direction or were unable to fill in the gaps for themselves. Detail and hands on management are not strengths of a Sag Boss. He will teach, he will motivate, he will inspire, but you need to be prepared to do the rest. A great starter, Sag Boss does not have the attention span required to dot the “i”s or cross the “t”s. The sun is shining and life is bigger than that. Nor does Sag Boss tolerate whingeing, whining or victim mentality- again, life is too short and he finds negativity is boring. If you are the type to sit at your desk confident that one day your undeniable talents and experience will be recognized, don’t work for a Sag. He has neither the time nor the inclination to notice. Sag will reward initiative, vision and action- with Sag the only bad decision is the absence of decision. All problems have a potential solution and the glass is never ever half empty. ‘Do you reckon anyone is doing micro light planes over Milford Sound?’ he asked. I always loved performance review time with Sag Boss; after the first five minutes we could get away from the detail of box ticking and into the really important staff -- vision and strategy -- results of the previous year are just so yesterday.
