"A couple of years ago, I made one of the hardest calls I have
ever had to make as a CEO. Was it around a RIF? Nope. Was it around
a new strategic direction? Nah.

their noses and move to The Google. For some employees (engineers,
etc.) this was no big deal.
"But execs...wow...a whole other ball of wax. Execs have
Stockholm Syndrome. Even though they will vociferously announce how
much they hate Outlook (resource hog, crashing, etc) that very same
Exec will get wild-eyed when you ask them to switch. I get it. I
was a 10 year prisoner of M$FT myself.
"Well, I am proud to announce that, by force of paycheck, I did
get them to switch — or nearly all of them. We have one
dinosaur left, but that’s just fear of change talking. Kami,
wake up and smell the sky!"
