Replying to LO6229 --

Scott used cowboy metaphors for management

> Traditonal - Lots of wear and tear, imposed stress, sleepless nights,
yelling and shooting -- but it works, you do get the cattle to their (final?)

>Another approach is to be at the front of the herd with some sweet
feed (oats, barley, molasses etc. all mixed together) and toss it on
the ground.

I do not want to be one of your sheep on the sidelines but IMHO the
problem is yellin and shootin is fun godammit. All cowboys know it is what
all cowboys do which is why they all wanted to become cowboys in the first
place and nobody got to be trail boss by tossin molasses. How do you get
turkeys to vote for Christmas?
