Running a Wawa store and managing a Roman Catholic parish might not seem to have much in common. But last week, a group of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary students, a year from being ordained as priests, had the last of five management-training sessions inspired by a program that St. Joseph's University professors developed for the convenience-store chain. For the seminarians, the Thursday management classes at St. Joseph's Haub School of Business were in sharp contrast to the philosophy and theology classes that are central to their formation as priests.

Anybody looking in from the outside would think I have it all: work, family, home, health. But I feel together only when everything falls into place. If just one little piece gets out of kilter, I feel as though I'm drowning in disorganization - as though my whole carefully created world is toppling. Some of my friends tell me my expectations are too high, that I can't control everything all the time. But what am I supposed to do? Realize, first of all, that you are not alone. Hundreds of thousands of working parents feel that they can't get control of their lives.

Adam Smith's "invisible hand" reached out last week and swatted Leonid Skupkov. Skupkov, who manages a knitwear factory in south-central Russia, had botched his first attempt to manage a factory in a free-market economy: His plant stayed deep in debt for 12 production periods because Skupkov misjudged how much he could sell at what prices. Skupkov took the blow with a game smile. His mismanagement had cost him nothing but a bit of pride, since his "factory" was only a figment of computer software.

A panel now being formed of prominent private citizens can be key to overhauling the Philadelphia Housing Authority, especially if it tackles the agency's longest-running problem: patronage. While the private panel, headed by banker Samuel A. McCullough, will draft its own list of tasks - and plenty of them - there will never be a better time to tackle this politically delicate issue. With pols in Washington and Philadelphia staking their reputations on cleaning up PHA, the outside panel can help curb abuses by putting its own experts to work.

Hamburger University, the institution of higher McLearning, and four area community colleges have a question for managers of local McDonald's restaurants: Would you like a degree with that? Looking for ways to prevent employees from slipping away as fast as cars in the drive-through lane, local McDonald's officials have arranged college credit for managers who take McDonald's classes locally and at their national training center, Hamburger U. in Illinois. Company officials created the "McDonald's College Degree Program" to recruit badly needed workers and to enhance the appeal of careers in fast-food service.

Robert M. Gates is the former secretary of defense and director of the CIA, and author of "A Passion for Leadership," from which the following was excerpted My first leadership position was as a patrol leader in Boy Scout Troop 522 in Wichita, Kan. Nothing develops or tests leadership skills like trying to get people to do what you ask when they don't have to - especially if they are 12 or 13 years old and you are just a year older. My first leadership training course was in July 1959, the national junior leader training program at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.

WASHINGTON - Sens. Robert P. Casey and Pat Toomey called Wednesday for an audit of every regional Veterans Affairs office nationwide - the latest round of scrutiny aimed at an agency already facing sharp questions for its management in Philadelphia and elsewhere. Under a bill unveiled by Pennsylvania's two senators and supported by members of a bipartisan working group cochaired by Casey, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office would be required to review regional VA offices within a year of passage for "consistency" in decision-making, and to find and share best practices at facilities that are doing well.

DEAR ABBY: I understand the frustration of "Takes My Job Seriously," the supervisor who complained about her female employees requesting time off for kids' school and sports events or beauty appointments. Over the last few years I have noticed a decline in work ethic across the board. Phone calls go unreturned, workers stand around idle, and errors are made on important forms. People seem to do the minimum necessary to make it to the end of the day, and supervisors aren't much different - they allow this behavior.

Voicu Bogdan came to the United States two years ago thinking he had signed up for management training that would launch him on a career in tourism at home in Romania. Instead, the college graduate cooked burgers and swabbed floors for $7 an hour at a Wendy's in Paoli. He said he sometimes worked more than 50 hours a week without overtime pay. The State Department forbids using the cultural and educational exchange program that brought Bogdan here purely to import workers.

William G. Rohrer, his daughter Linda will tell you in good humor, was a man whose ego was as large as his 300-pound body. "If he had his way," she said with a chuckle, "his name would be on every street sign, every marker. " But she also remembers the legendary Haddon Township mayor and businessman as someone who loved and enjoyed helping people. In the 12 years since his death, she and the other three trustees of the William G. Rohrer Charitable Foundation have sought to honor his memory in a way that combines those two traits: They have been donating money to South Jersey nonprofit groups for programs they believe Rohrer would have supported.
