All hail Carleen Hawn because she has written a fabulously funny analysis of the management style of (Fake) Steve Jobs. It’s called the “Ten Commandments of Fake Steve Jobs”

  1. Never let people know where they stand.

  2. You don’t have to hire the best people.

  3. Only promote stupid people.

  4. Never tell people what is expected of them.

  5. A manager should be inconsistent and unpredictable.

  6. No praise. Ever.

  7. Keep people’s spirits broken.

  8. Throw tantrums.

  9. Don’t speak to employees in elevators.

  10. Start with the ad campaign.

I haven’t provided all the text that goes with each commandment so that you have to click through and read the whole posting in all its glory. Trust me, it’s worth it.
