Comments on: Yahoo’s Bartz drops the F-bomb http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/04/22/yahoos-bartz-drops-the-f-bomb/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Mandiran http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/04/22/yahoos-bartz-drops-the-f-bomb/#comment-358119 Wed, 22 Apr 2009 20:46:10 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=16192#comment-358119 Is that ALL anybody recalls from this beautiful lady’s speech? While reading the post, I was thinking I might find other things which she said was more interesting. Obviously, people are not concerned.

It blows my mind what actually makes the news these days. Someone uses a word that some people seem to find offensive and it’s news? How about the context of what she was talking about? Was she right? Does that matter? Or will everyone spend the next week talking about her using a specific word instead?

What was it that she said? Were they “faking” their jobs? What’s wrong with saying they were faking it? If people aren’t doing their work, it’s her job to make them do it. That’s what a supervisor is all about. Otherwise the company can go bankrupt. Isn’t Google doing better than Yahoo? Yahoo should catch up so their investors can be profitable. If she gets them to do more work, then they should consider her for a promotion. Women are becoming more advanced in companies now. Accept it!

It also depicts on the current state of the organization and she is taking the approach of “directive” situational leader. Her message is for the employees to be more efficient in their operations, which is probably the root cause of YAHOO’s failures.
She might be consciously lowering her “relationship” oriented behavior based on the chaos that exists.
As far as her “credibility” is concerned, she need not worry, she has plenty of history to prove it.
Being straight is also sometimes inspiring and motivating for the managers who had been suppressed in the past and now might see this as a change that will bring order.

Why? Because my predecessors created this culture; it stinks; and changing values ( like this one: blame everyone else or make good excuses) – let alone behavior…is REALLY tough. May take a few more louder f bombs to shake the place (and “not me” excuses) up. You go girl.

Maybe this was a slip and then again maybe it wasnt. I personally hope that she meant to say it to deliver her point that much stronger. Look, If Trump or Welch said it…the market would spin it. If she doesnt land on the cover of a major business magazine, I would be very suprised….

Now I am a fan!
