Ridiculous Business Books

Write a humdrum business book. Give it a title that has nothing to do with the content. And you've got Leadership Sopranos Style.

Debbie Himsel saw an episode in which Tony asks for blunt feedback. "Give it to my face," he says.

And from that she concluded that Tony is the kind of manager you want to be. Well, maybe he is but only because he doesn't follow her instructions.

Here's her advice. Does it sound like you-know-who?

1. Create an atmosphere of trust.
2. Let people speak freely.
3. Don't get defensive.
4. blahblahblah, blahblahblah, blahblahblah

Here's how Tony really talks:

Parvati: There's a Zuni saying: for every 20 wrongs a child does, ignore 19.
Tony: There's an old Italian saying: you fuck up once, you lose 2 teeth.

David: Tony, I'm sorry; I'm sorry. I'm just having some bad luck!
Tony: Yeah? It just got worse.

There's more here.
