CODE NAME: BossMan
Commander of the corridor, bigwig of the boardroom, the manager wields his power through meetings and memos. Leading a brave crusade to reach objectives, through an open door he empowers, incentivizes, implements change and captures mindshare. Yet, this hero has a dark side. In worship of mysterious core competencies he rightsizes, conducts blamestorming, and turns boardrooms into bored rooms.

Activities to Share with your BossMan
> Motivation and Mentoring
Want to give your team the gift of constant motivation? Can't be at all places at once to mentor all those in need of your wisdom and experience? With BossMan at their desk your staff can anticipate the support and sage advice you would share if you were standing over their shoulder.
> Stand-in for Meetings and Play Days
Too many meetings and strategy sessions that go on forever? Appoint BossMan as your official representative and head out to the links. His bossy vibes will motivate your staff while giving you some well deserved R&R. Note - BossMan also makes an excellent mini plastic underling!
> Complaint Collector
Stress rising? Problems coming out of the woodwork? Assign BossMan to the task. Instead of asking people to ‘tell it to the hand', ask them to ‘tell it to BossMan'. It's hard to justify arguing with a 6-inch plastic action figure, unless you're in a straightjacket.
> Management Confessional
Need some support and encouragement? Your BossMan, due to the fact that he's entirely composed of inert plastic, is an excellent listener. If you need to confess your managerial sins BossMan will listen intently without interrupting or voicing his opinion.
For Highly Valued Employees:

Is today a good day to ask for a raise or is it better to hide in your cubicle? Equip BossMan with the appropriate face to match your boss's mood and warn colleagues what they're up against.
> Boss Replacement
Feel lonely when the boss is out of the office? Missing someone micromanaging and standing over your shoulders? Promote BossMan to honorary big cheese and it's almost business as usual. Clients and colleagues may wonder why your manager suddenly got shorter, but they'll be quickly won over with his neato new demeanor.
> Face Time Practice
Want a trial run of your next performance review? Need to get something off your chest? Practice with BossMan first - his inherent silence makes sure you get the last word, while his diminutive stature helps build confidence.
