Fast Start — Why your boss really is an ape

John S Dykes, Dario Maestripieri, Wall Street Journal, Matt Ridley, Toby ElwinFast Start conversation:  Frustrating.  You write your boss and wait for a response, and wait, and finally, get a short, perhaps muddled, response that leaves you scrambling.

No worries, your boss gets frustrated by short and un-timely replies from their boss too.

There is a dominance correlation going on here.  Incidentally the very same thing happens to chimpanzees too.

No matter the cut of our suit, the brand of smart phone, or the iPad we use, to a primatologist, like, Dr. Dario Maestripieri, our social behavior is as predictable to him as other primate species and our shared ancestors’ behavior.

What does your team do that might make our ape relatives proud?
