Women, women, women

A gallery of women caricature portraits by ArtMagenta
All these ladies have names: Lisa, Esther, Eva, Kate, Jenny, Helen....
And even more, they have got a life and have something from that life to share with you. A little story, an opinion or just an attitude.

I love doing those caricature portraits. It's people I meet in the street, restaurants, station, on the train or in shopping malls. Some of them I know but most of them are anonymous to me. I give them a name and suddenly they come to live in my fantasy and they tell me things from their lives. And that is what I want to communicate to you in this blog.

Contrasting manager styles

Do you remember seeing this guy? That's a long time ago. He was a typical manager in the days of the dinosaurs. 

He has created protective fences that can hide incompetence.
His power is untouchable. 
(Such managers can still be found in some companies today.)

A modern manager with a transparent competence. Nothing to hide. Ready to leave his position if his competence fails.
No need to hide behind a "power attitude".
