One response to “PayPal President’s Ream-the-Team Email: Good or Bad Leadership?”

    This is an example of an executive insulated from his own organization.

    What isn’t mentioned (or data available): he mentions low leads, but never mentions the penetration in different areas. Perhaps he’s misread the situation and San Jose has the highest penetration, therefor the lowest leads, therefore he’s yelling at the successful?

    Seen exactly that sort of mistake made with regard to sales and lead management.
