Project Management Blog
So far we dealt with Mr. Genius by clueing him in to what everyone else already knows: he doesn’t have all the answers.  Then we overcame Ms. Bellows by digging to the root causes and getting her to calm down.  But Mr. Promise seems like he would be a great guy to have around.  How could he possibly be evil?

The superhero gene inherent in project managers can mutate and become something ugly. Such is the case with Ms. Bellows. Instead of discussing, she yells. People leave her office in tears. Behind her back people call her Yelly Kelly.

The problem is that she is successful. People jump when she says to and projects get done on time. This makes upper management happy and she is rewarded, reinforcing the original problem. Eventually no one willingly works with her and some of the best resources leave the department, company or even country.
