The 5 Temptations of a CEO

Yay, it's story time in the workplace.  I believe this horrible trend was started with the One Minute Manager.  It's reached the pabulum covered goodness with The 5 Temptations of a CEO.

Let me tell you the plot, don't worry I'm not ruining anything for you, a CEO falls asleep on the train, an old man wakes him up and drags him to another car.  Yes the head honcho is traveling around on a train and follows an old man around, how realistic.

Anyway the old man tells the CEO how to run his business, the CEO listens and his business improves and then when the company puts up pictures of the former CEOs the CEO in the story recognized the old man as a former CEO!

If your CEO is taking business advice from old men on the train please for the love Mary hold a shareholder revolt.

Maybe the advice in the book is tolerable but it's overshadowed by the worlds worst attempt to pry $10 out of a businessman's hands that I've ever witnessed.  Pass on this one.
