Strong-arm tactics to force people to do things your way. Mental abuse and strong verbal abuse to create an environment of fear. Deny it is happening and convince upper management that nothing bad is happening. Get busted on abuse by current and former employees, but work to keep it all internal with no complaints in writing and nothing in files.Okay, your little general is a napoleonist tyrant manager, but it is a stretch to think that he justified his abuse by asking what joePa would do in your business situation.
With that stretched, if he likes Batman movies someone is going to say he has been figuratively shooting salespeople all year to satisfy his sick twisted military desire to gain respect for his little automatic weapon.
Work hard to continue to hide and deny any revealed actions and facts. Work the media like Topix and Facebook to put a good face on the abuse causing turnover. Have revealing posts and comments deleted and hidden at any opportunity. Nothing changes until the president steps in and changes the way the game is played at Beaver stadium. Coincidences?
One year ago one person took over Forever Communications management and he proudly still wears the PennState name and defends the abuse and coverup as business as usual.
