Just saw Yuri's latest posts, and without adding to the "Yuri Watch" I can see is going on ;)  I came to think about something. Would you actually spend a weekend with Yuri? Would he qualify to work with you? Why, why not?

That's a weird article. Is he talking about a working weekend or a relaxing weekend? I don't think it's necessary to want to share your downtime with working colleagues. I naturally gravitated towards certain colleagues more than others to spend breaks together. We even had some lovely nights out as a group. But we all had different preferences as to how to spend our leisure time. I can't see how that's relevant.
If Yuri wants to come out birding at the weekend, he's welcome. Otherwise he can find someone else to spend his weekends with.
Added: realising that I would never voluntarily spend five minutes with my newish boss was a key factor in leaving the job (totally different values), but there's a big difference between 5 minutes and a weekend.

I disagree with this theory. I have plenty of friends that are a blast to spend the weekend with, but I probably would not want to enter into a long term business relationship with them. On the flip side, I'm sure there are plenty of shrewd and savvy businessmen that would be great for business, but not necessarily the most enjoyable company for a weekend.

I do agree about using your gut though when it comes to trusting somebody. Sometimes there are obvious red flags.

Yes, that part is true.

Interesting article but I also disagree with his weekend test.  When employing someone or going into partnership with them or even a short joint venture, personal feelings shouldnt come into play.  Sometimes you need to do business with people who are shrewd, especially when youre not.  They dont have to be saints, they just have to be playing for your team.  There are lots of people Id go into business with that Id find too dull to spend personal time with and why would I anyway?  Its never wise to mix business with pleasure.

Id spend a weekend with him because he seems like a interesting genuine guy with lots of great experiences to share but after reading his article, I wouldn't go into business with him - he seems too soft :D

Of course you want people you can trust to work with, but you don't have to want to go scrapbooking with them.

 ;D

Do these people who go for a walk in the woods who "asked not to be named as they were asked to sign a nondisclosure agreement with Facebook during the interview process" ever come out of the woods?

Are you confessing your secret love for scrapbooking?  ;D

Lol - I thought it would be more emotive than "hunting", but I guess that would work too.
