This was an interesting read - I particularly like the tips on finding common ground with people.

You can't always like everyone but to be an effective manager/team player it is important to make everyone feel included.

It can be easy to fall into the favoritism trap without even noticing you are doing it so the tips about being accountable I will use to ensure I'm not doing this.
