Encyclopedic Math(s)

Jeff Haden's reflective piece, 5 Things You Should Say to Your Colleagues Today, aims to make the workplace a more encouraging place for people to be. With a bit of creative licence, the ideas he presents reduce to the following equations:
  • praise them < (praise them) ^ retrospectively
  • help me = indirect praise
  • say sorry = sorry + why - but
  • help them = (time free + offer help) · (collaborative - patronizing)
