motovational screaming

Listening to, of all thing, Steve Ballmer of Microsoft giving a speech at the Institute of Directors Annual Convention in London. What shocked me about mister scream is that he can say the right thing.

"We've got sales people and we've got engineers. Whenever we bring them in the room and give them the same speech, you get different perspectives on exactly the same message from the two communities."..."you do the same [speech for the salespeople] in front of a group of engineers, you might get a little bit more, shall we say, cynical reaction. You've got to sort of build from the reality up as opposed to from the hype down."

Its the first time anyone has admitted this.
