About

Hi, I’m Anne Libby.  On Management is my newsletter about managing people and the workplace. I send emails once or twice a month, usually on Sundays. Sometimes it’s a deep dive. Sometimes it’s my brief not-so-hot take.

Emerging managers in the NYC tech/startup community inspired me to write about managing and the workplace. I saw people who wanted to learn and grow seeking resources on people management; they were finding stuff on the Internet. It wasn't all good.

I endeavor to balance my affection for my professional community with my skepticism about tech, media, and cheerleading about changing the world. And everything that crosses our feeds about app-enabled, algorithmically-managed, futures of work. Also, the gig and creator economies.

On Management readers work in tech, startups, media, and venture. And, also, in small businesses, not-for-profits, academia, large enterprises, and government. They're curious people; I'm fortunate to have them spend time with my newsletter.

I want to provide practical information, things you can act on. To surface points of view and resources you might not be running across elsewhere. To talk about ways we're all co-creating the so-called future of work with the choices we make every day. Also, to be interesting, insightful, and sometimes weird.

A stalwart group of readers support my newsletter financially; most received On Management for a while before joining. It’s not an impulse buy, lol.

Here's my bio.

Also, I love movies about work.
