Are you the CEO of your Thanksgiving?

Today's NYTimes has a funny piece on Thanksgiving, urging readers to be CEO – define a vision, and delegate most of the work. It's tongue-in-cheek but has some kernels of truth.

But beware, the "organizing to execute" style

of management can be exhausting, though, and runs the risk of everyone talking for years to come about what a control freak you are.

A looser, more style, "organizing to innovate" has less predictable results but will likely result in a happier crowd.

The reader comments on this particular article are amusing as well. Check them out here.

And of course, you can always elect to be a guest rather than CEO of your holiday!
