Choosing a manager

The best way to choose a manager – like the best way to choose a son-in-law – is by character or culture. You should only go with a manager who aims to do what you too intend. Never try to change the way a manager manages. Only hire a manager you really expect to stay with for a very long time – at least 20 years – because the cost to change managers is high.
