Here’s an illustrious powerplay if ever there was one. Follow closely…
DAD: Son, you have to get married. I have a girl for you.
SON: Not possible!! I don’t want to marry.
DAD: Think twice son. She is Bill Gates’ daughter!
SON: Ok Dad, I am ready!
(Dad goes to Bill Gate)
DAD: My son wants to marry your daughter!
BILL GATES: Not possible!
DAD: Think twice, my son is the CEO of Swiss Bank.
BILL GATES: Well, she’s ready!
(Dad goes to Swiss Bank Bank)
DAD: Make my son the CEO of your Bank!
BANK: Not possible!
DAD: Think twice, he is Bill Gates’ son-in-law.
BANK: Your son’s job is confirmed!
Is this not a great example of superlative management skills!?
