Going Against The Grain

Some people have an inflated sense of self importance

Doesn’t Zell Know That “Shock & Awe” Won’t Build Engagement? asks

Frankly Judy, I don’t think Mr. Zell cares what you think (or what I think for that matter). But what I would say is that this guy sold one of his companies for $39 billion and has a net worth of about $6 billion. And I suspect that somewhere in that empire of real estate, he may have had a person or two to manage. I could be wrong, but I have yet to see anyone build a company of that size with nary an employee.

While your firm may be “engagement specialists”, Mr Zell seems to be, well, “a making-sick-amounts-of-money-specialist” and since the name of the game is making money, I suspect that Mr. Zell’s management instincts are probably well honed.

But I’m sure he appreciates your concern
