What Would Tony Do?


What Would Tony Do?

Courtesy of FoxNews:

Managers are thinking outside the box to get more results from their cubicled troops, throwing out their training manuals as well as the furniture and looking up to a mob boss for motivational advice.

Deborrah Himsel, vice president of organizational effectiveness for cosmetics giant Avon (AVP), is an avid viewer of HBO's "The Sopranos" and became inspired by Tony — "a catalyst for learning about both effective and ineffective leadership practices."

Himsel compiled Tony's mafia-style management lessons into a book, "Leadership Sopranos Style: How to Become a More Effective Boss." Using the technique of a sit-down as a conflict resolution device is a skill Tony has mastered and other leaders need to work at, particularly during these high-tech times, said Himsel.
