if someone had explained to me a while ago that the largest part of management is being able to explain that you have no idea what you're doing in terms that make it sound like you know exactly what you're doing, I think I could have been a very effective manager.

Not to say that management is all about having no idea what you're doing. Its the teamwork aspect that I was never really privvy to. The concept that people work together, but all have different specialities, functions, knowledge, etc. One or two perople good at managing different types of people, and assembling a team of people that know lots of little things. I used to think it was all about the little things.... which it is.

That is, unless you have someone working on the details already.
