Rant & Bad Memory: Am thinking of the time that nutbag Mahfuz took me out of the field to create a fictious business plan

We were taken out of the field for a full f***ing week two years ago and flown across the country and stuck in a dark conference room during the all-important January to attend a Sales Training mandated by that nutbag Mahfuz, our so-called leader.  This was bad enough, but then we spent most of the time brainstorming for a new business idea that we could pitch to customers.  WTF.  We were running a 500M organization with firm practices in place with a nutbag CEO (Mahfuz), and he wastes a fully day of my time brainstorming for what-ifs?  This would be fine, but he was completely intolerant of missed quotas and had a no cell-phone policy during these meetings, which is why 80% of the people were fired or quit every month, plus I had an office I was responsible for.  I was thinking about this right now, as I came across the title “Content Manager” and that was one of the ideas — Content — we were brainstorming for.  As a former Educator, I knew these one-day brainstorming with no follow-up on top of a million other similar activites that Mahfuz oversaw on top of our stressful day jobs was doomed to fail.    I rue the day I ever worked for that whack job, and the next time I think of him will be too soon 🙂
