The Top Sixteen Lies of CEOs

Curioso post de Guy Kawasaki que completa su post anterior sobre sus más socialmente correctas

1. “Working together, we’ve established our goals.” In other words, these are the goals that the CEO decided will make him look good. Few managers believe that these goals are doable, and yet they are the ones who are going to have to accomplish them. But that’s what working together means: the CEO decides and the workers do.

2. “It’s like a startup around here.” This could mean that the place lacks adult supervision; capital is running out; the product is behind schedule; investors have given up, and employees are paid below market rates. Sure, it could alternatively mean that the company is energized, entrepreneurial, making meaning, and kicking butt, but just be sure to double check.

3. “Your project will be a skunkworks reporting directly to me.” This means that no one else at the management level buys into the idea. The CEO might protect you—as this lie implies. Or, you may be fighting for your life against the naysayers when the CEO moves on to the next brilliant idea du jour.

4. “I wanted to do this, but the board wouldn’t let me.” This is a cop out. A good CEO tells the board what she wants to do. She doesn’t seek permission—forgiveness maybe, but never permission. So this statement means one of two things: the CEO didn’t really try her best to get something approved or the board is losing confidence in the CEO.

5. “I expect you to figure this out.” This is a loaded, supposed backhanded compliment. It’s supposed to mean, ”I have such confidence in you that I know you can do this.” Sometimes it does means this. Most times, though, it means that the CEO has no clue and is praying that you can save his butt.

6. “Our sales pipeline looks good.” This means that the vice president of sales leaned on the regional sales manager who leaned on the regional sales rep to pump up the forecast because the CEO doesn’t want to look bad to the board of directors.

7. “We will be profitable soon.” After leaning on the sales organization and it “came through with a great pipeline,” the CEO could then ”reliably“ predict profitability. He never did check with the CFO, though. If the company isn’t profitable, then it’s the fault of the vice president of sales or CFO anyway.

8. “The stock price is not important; what’s important is building a great company.” There are handful of visionary CEOs who mean this when they say it. However, you don’t work for one of them. If one could get an honest answer out of CEOs, most would tell you that they’d rather have a rising stock price than a great company. Very few have the courage to build a great company and trust that a rising stock price is a natural outcome of this accomplishment.

9. “I’ve never worked with a better group of people.” The career limiting comeback to this is, “Well, I have—starting at the top.” This can be a legitimate morale boosting statement when it is infrequently made. However, if a CEO spouts this off more than once every five to ten years, and you know there are clearly bozos on the team (often protected by the CEO), then you know that he’s playing you.

10. “I’m open to new ideas.” The CEO must have recently read a book by a management guru. She’s certainly open to his own new ideas. She’s probably open to new ideas from the consultants that she hired at $10,000/day. Maybe she read a new idea in a blog, God help us. The relevant question is whether she’s open to new ideas from the rank-and-file employees who really know how to fix the company.

11. “I want to hear the truth; I don’t want yes-men around me.” Maybe this is the truth: he doesn’t want yes men around—he wants yes women. But I doubt it. It could be that he’s so arrogant that he believes that he’s always right so there’s nothing to disagree with. But I doubt that too. The most likely situation is that he’s just lying, and he wants people to always agree with him.

12. “I will gladly step aside when the time comes.” Sure, with a $10 million severance package, who wouldn’t be glad to step aside?

13. “This is how we did it at (name of previous company he was fired from), and it worked.” And that’s why the company let him go. And that’s why the employees at the previous company rejoiced when the news spread. And, unfortunately, that’s why the directors of this company hired him: because he was a senior-level packaged goods guy who was available, and the board thought that your tech products should be sold like laundry detergent.

14. “I don’t need to understand all that whiz-bang stuff to be a good CEO.” Absolutely. Your customers aren’t that smart. Neither are your employees, vendors, and partners. The CEO just needs to stand there: tall, white, and gray haired, and let everyone kiss his ring.

15. “I don’t need to rehearse my speech.” This is because he’s not to going to gauge audience reaction since his limo is waiting to whisk him away. He’ll simply ask his handlers, Trixie and Biff, how they think he did. And they will tell him that the emperor has very fine clothes indeed.

16. “We are a customer-focused company.” If only the CEO had appended two additional words: "this quarter." Because next quarter the company will be an innovation-driven company. And the quarter after that a Six Sigma driven company. And the quarter after that the company will be producing purple cows. And the quarter after that it will be evangelistic (depending on whether the CEO reads my book or Seth's first).

Bonus: “I can telecommute and still keep my house on the golf course in Carmel.” The CEO should be living and dying with the company. If anything, he should be there more than anyone.

Rather than these lies, here are four things you’d like your CEO to say:

1. “I don’t know.”

2. “Thank you.”

3. “Do what’s right.”

4. “It’s my fault.”

Un marroquí de un top manta dijo una vez...

...que puso un disco de Ramoncín y lo tuvo que quitar porque en las tiendas estaba más barato

Llego a traves del blog de David Bravo a un video de Sabina que sigue dandole duro a Ramoncín

Video en web de Telecinco

El blog no se ve bien con Internet Explorer

Algo he debido romper en la plantilla, si alguien sabe como arreglarlo que me lo cuente.

En cualquier caso con Firefox va bien, y dado que la mayoría utilizais agregadores (los que no ya tardais) no pienso perder mucho tiempo en el tema

The Rock has become a tourist attraction?

Hace unos meses hablabamos sobre la tendencia de la industria mediatica de destronar leyendas con malos remakes y adaptaciones de cualquier personaje digno de nuestros recuerdos (empezando por los comics y acabando en los videojuegos)... no llegaba a salir el tema pero va bastante en línea con regresos de bandas "de ayer" (por no entrar detalles destacaré la de "los putos Eagles" que juraron no volver a tocar juntos hasta que se helase el infierno y sacaron un disco con ese título). En esta época en la que nuestro espectro de atención está tan saturado parece la única forma de garantizar ventas...

El post de hoy no tiene mucho que ver, pero tambien marchita buenos recuerdos: un chaval de 7 años acaba de destrozar toda la épica sobre Alcatraz... Visto lo visto ¿Cómo vamos a respetar historias como Escape from Alcatraz o The Rock?

Posts recopilatorios 2006 Q1

Poco a poco vamos cumpliendo los objetivos de la declaración de intenciones...

1. Los comentarios están en abierto y no ha generado problemas, sólo falta que consiga un "últimos comentarios"

2. Ya he añadido en el menú los enlaces a mis bookmarks (del.icio.us), blogs (bloglines), fotos (flickr), videos (youtube) y de paso un email de contacto (he puesto una imagen para no cosechar spam).
  • Con este paso pretendo que el blog se convierta en un punto de acceso único a todos los contenidos que hago públicos
  • Aquellos que me conoceis personalmente podeis solicitar "conectar" en estos servicios para que os facilite acceso a contenidos privados (ej. fotos del último viaje de esquí o bookmarks sobre aquel tema en el que trabajamos)
3. Sigo dandole vueltas al caos que supone la estructura actual... dos tercios de los contenidos caen entre "curiosos" y "off-topics"... lo que indica que la clasificación no es buena, probablemente porque sigo sin tener claro de que va esto.

En fin, de momento os dejo con el post recopilatorio del primer trimestre 2006..

Skiing (Quotes)

Skiing combines outdoor fun with knocking down trees with your face.

Nunca había aspirado a ser Springsteen, sino Borges

Ese Sabina. Llego por medio del Blog de David Bravo a una muy interesante entrevista que hacen en el Correo Digital a Sabina. Dicen que los viejos rockeros nunca mueren, espero que nos queden muchos años de este poeta:

-A Ramoncín no le ha gustado el título de su gira, 'Carretera y Top Manta'.

-Que se joda. Si es más tonto, no nace. Es una broma, como cualquiera puede entender. Pero este señor -por decir algo- tan solemne no lo entiende. Más piratas y más grandes hay en las multinacionales. Quienes más pierden son los que más ganan. Y, además, los discos de Ramoncín no se venden ni en el 'top manta' ni en ningún lugar.


-¿No le preocupa perder fans al invitar al Príncipe y a doña Letizia a cenar en su casa?

-Yo no voy a cenar a palacios, pero en mi casa cena quien me da la gana. Es un tercer piso del barrio de Lavapiés. Vienen mis amigos y no tengo que darle explicaciones a nadie.

-¿Les trata de usted?

-En mi casa trato a todo el mundo de tú. Y nunca quito la bandera republicana.

Warner Bros se apunta al BitTorrent

Leo en Gizmodo que WB ha decidido dar un paso más en la hiperdistribución de contenidos y esta planeando usar BitTorrent con la intención de convertir algunos de sus piratas en usuarios de pago (mencionan $1 por película)

If we can convert 5, 10, 15 percent of the peer-to-peer users that have been obtaining our product from illegitimate sources to becoming legitimate buyers of our product, that has the potential of a huge impact on our industry and our economics.

En Gizmodo opinan que competir con gratis es dificil, aun con esos precios, pero no estoy totalmente de acuerdo. $1 parece un precio razonable (equivalente a itunes) y dado que a $1.5 ganan dinero, a $1 usando BitTorrent ganarán más dado que todo el esfuerzo de distribución - es decir el pago por ancho de banda - y almacenamiento lo ponen los usuarios. El problema es que quizás han cabreado a demasiada gente a estas alturas

Leo en Microsiervos una lista de máquinas de la que me ha llamado la atención una que piensa solita

El informático estadounidense John Koza, padre de la llamada “programación genética”, ha conseguido desarrollar una máquina con capacidad inventiva. Se trata de un artefacto que puede realizar en paralelo hasta 1.000 procesamientos, a partir de los cuales genera inventos patentables.

Uno de los más destacados ha sido una antena que ya ha sido utilizada por la NASA en uno de sus microsatélites experimentales, y que se ha convertido en el primer objeto ideado artificialmente para ser lanzado al espacio.
