Well how about the other 6,000 Bassett employees that lost theirs jobs...A Quality Management Consultant to Bassett in 1997 told me that in 5 years you would not recognize Bassett..He was right I was discharged in November 2001..
There are three types of leaders in companies:
1. "Risk-Takers" The first generation whose vision started the company.
2; "Care-Takers" The second generation,ride the success of their father's.
3. Under-takers The third generation.They bury the company. NO vision. Guess who is in charge now at Bassett..1, 2, or 3?
