    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit being "yes" men or women. Recognize when your resources and subordinates are stretched thin and relay that to higher. Make a conscious effort to refrain from having favorites and promote your subordinates based on merit. And don't be afraid to demote your subordinates as well. It is best to cut the cancer out before it infects the rest. Document everything; evidence is key.
