Mathilda sitting on a bench
Mathilda likes to sit on public benches. Every time as she sees a bench she sits down and read a book, a paper or just sits.
- You should also try it. Public benches are mostly not comfortable, but they give you a most relaxing time. I think it is a reaction on all our sitting in front of a TV set. On the bench you have real things happening all around you, all the time. You really should try it!

Only football players doesn't, and shouldn't like the bench - for certain other reasons...

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".
