ARE CRUSTY OLD GUYS KILLING YOUR BUSINESS?

You are sitting in a boardroom ... and the meeting is like a corporate version of GroundHog Day or listening to the Charlie Brown teacher.  Same tired clichés repeated, in a monotone voice, over and over by grizzled veterans who refuse to see how fast the world is changing.  

Crusty Old Guys with 30+ years of “experience” who may be the ones killing your business.

We’ve seen it before, out-of-date, out-of-touch companies run by crusty old guys, who thought they were too big to fail. 







Insights on this condition can be found in the movie & best-selling book by Michael Lewis, MONEYBALL, that told the story of how Billy Beane, general manager of the Oakland Athletics, turned a low-budget baseball team into one that could compete with the sports giants.

Beane’s character - played by Brad Pitt- found a way to do more with less, simply by ignoring tradition; batting averages, RBI’s and home runs that had been used for decades. 

Instead he placed greater value on what traditional scouting had previously overlooked.

Here's where the Story Gets Good...

Watch this latest episode of Leaders & Legends and discover why.



     “It was hard to know which of Billy's qualities was most important to his team's success: his energy, his resourcefulness, his intelligence, or his ability to scare the living shit out of even very large professional baseball players.”
