I would like them to follow these traits I learned many years ago: Marine Corps Leadership Traits

I don't like to work for Pointy Haired Bosses, Lumberghs or Mr. Shankleys.

That's actually a very good list, thank you for sharing, Frank. I agree almost with everything (except maybe for enduring pain :)).

Though can you please explain the part with Pointy Haired Bosses etc?
