Office Ghosts are particularly effective when they have a big title that comes with an assistant, and a boss in another location because no one is really sure what they do all day, but they still have the ability to step up and take credit once a project is completed.
Assistant: I think he’s in his office but I’m not sure since he always has the door closed. Let me check.
Assistant: No, he’s not in there. He might be in a meeting.
Employee: He’s like the office ghost. I can never find him when I need to talk with him. What does he do all day?
Assistant: Honestly I have no idea. You tell me when you figure it out and we’ll both know.
