Tina Fey Explains Positive Influences of Great Bosses, “How to Get the Eggs”

There’s an interesting passage in comedian Tina Fey’s bestselling book “Bossypants,” where she talks about what she learned from Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels. The former SNL star said she was struck by the way Lorne would connect with his whole team, even performers she perceived as a bit too needy. Lorne was infinitely patient with those writers and actors because he knew they were still capable of turning out the best work, and they produced for him. “He knew how to get the eggs,” Tina wrote.
