SuperNLately, N.Lo isn’t happy unless he’s climbing. Stairs, stepstools, toy  boxes, toys themselves. And because new-hire climbing by nature tends to require some level of micromanagement, Management isn’t particularly pleased with this phase. The options are a) micromanage, b) resist Helicopter Management and risk more cuts, scrapes, bruises, and potential trips to the Emergency Room (have I mentioned the stairs are brick?), or c) limit/prohibit said climbing activities completely. Much of the time, due to other managerial responsibilities, Management has to go with option c, which triggers extreme employee dissatisfaction. In fact, N.Lo has stuffed the Suggestion Box so full of complaints this week, the thing is overflowing.

Needless to say, it’s wearing a little thin. While Management remains proud of N.Lo’s strides and wishes to encourage skill set development wherever possible, we can only hope the learning curve kicks in soon, or that N.Lo can be satisfied with working on a different set of projects, rather than only training to be a superhero.

    This picture is classic! Would he be a Spiderman, climbing like that?
