Fred...just a super posting.

There's a great line from the NBC drama "The West Wing" that speaks to this as well. The democratic "president", Martin Sheen is hiring a republican lawyer for the White House staff. Everyone is stunned....and the Chief of Staff says:

"The President likes to hire smart people that disagree with him"

Way too many "yes" men and women in this business! I say...find smart people who disagree with you, put your ego in the background, and you'll be a better leader for it!

Fred,

As a former programmer that moved into the GM's position a little over three years ago I enjoyed the story of the Classic Rock GM! All I could think about was Jack Nicholson in "A Few Good Men" and the line "truth? You can't handle the truth!"
Thankfully she has left the industry and we have one less bonehead to deal with when trying to move forward.

Enjoy your blog, keep it up!
