Needless to say, this story is completely fictitious, but it delivers a powerful message to Managers who shoot from the hip. Enjoy. . . . . . .
If you’ve ever worked for a boss that reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this story…..
Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shake-up, hired a new CEO and he was determined to rid the company of all slackers.
On a tour of the facilities, the new CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He walked up to the guy at the wall and asked, ‘How much money do you make a week?’
A little surprised, the young man looked at him and replied, “I make about $400 a week. Why?”
The CEO then handed the guy $1,600 in cash and screamed, “Here’s four weeks’ pay, now GET OUT and don’t come back!”
The guy left without saying a word to the CEO.
Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, ‘Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here? ‘ From across the room came a voice, “Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.”
