    Great stuff. Also timely: there's a lot of unease [to put it mildly] around now about bonuses for bankers etc. so it's good to put Dr. D's message out there again. Also nice to have Brian Joiner's contribution included – helpful and straightforward.

    Excellent article!

    In our profession, it’s critical that we don’t overlook the human dimensions (unless you happen to just deal with machines or computers all day). Reading this article reminded me of Colin Powell’s definition: “Leadership is the art of accomplishing more than the science of management says is possible.”

    Thanks for shifting our focus beyond the spreadsheet to consider what is behind the numbers.

    Another most excellent analysis and discussion of this area is Peter Scholtes' Chapter 9 in _The Leader's Handbook_ – it hits every myth and management misconception. :-)
