"If you ever want to understand your boss, corner him (or her) at the next office party and see if he’ll play a little game. ... Then ask your boss to extend his (or her) right forefinger. ...
Then ask him to take that extended finger and draw a capital E on his forehead.
Does he draw the letter so that it faces him - that is, backward to a person looking at him? Or does he draw the letter so that the viewer can read it? Neither way is right or wrong. But the direction of that letter might tell you something about the disposition of that leader.
People who write the E so that it’s backward to themselves but legible to their partner have taken the other’s perspective. Those who draw the E so that it’s readable to themselves but backward to others haven’t bothered to consider the other person’s point of view."
Please read Daniel's full - and great - post Why bosses need to show their soft side at the telegraph.
Ideally you start at yourself! But don't cheat, now you know the better version.
