Did you even read what you posted?
? Still waiting for you to point out which part was the part where she explained why
this is a problem. She made sweeping declarations as though they were self-evident truths, but I didn't see anything
beyond that. Go on, show me what I missed. I made the work easy for you by listing all of her statements.
Edit: Incidentally, I just wanted to add that I'm not
saying that Zoé is wrong. I'm saying that she failed to make her case
. She failed at it so magnificently, in fact, that it was arguably worse than if she'd said nothing at all
. Now you can say that it's all Marie's (and Sandra's) fault or whatever you wish to tell yourself about it, but the reality is that when you're a leader who can't inspire people to follow you, blaming them
for not being inspired to respect your instructions and listen to you isn't going to make you any less of a failed leader. The reality is that Zoé occupies a leadership position here, and she's completely botching that role right now. She may know the business backwards and forwards, and she may be absolutely right
she's saying, but that doesn't amount to a hill of beans if she lacks the ability or the willingness to effectively communicate to her would-be underlings why
they should follow her guidance rather than someone else's, especially when that "someone else" is doing a rather bang-up job of making her
Just to give an example of what she might have done to handle this more effectively, let's imagine that instead of just shouting hyperbole and threats, she'd said something like, "So you think you know everything and don't need to listen to me anymore, do you? You think you can just skip straight to the top without consequences? Well, let me tell you a little story about a model who tried to do just that ..." I mean, presumably if she's so knowledgeable and experienced in the business, and if it's even half as cutthroat as she's making it out to be, she should be able to recall at least one or two
cautionary anecdotes, right?
Or if she can't
, then maybe she doesn't
know as much as she likes to pretend she knows! I mean, after all, as Maelphaxerazz pointed out, Sandra actually established her breakaway success by ignoring
the rules, not by following
them. Really, at this point, Zoé needs to make her case as much to us
as to Marie and Sandra, at least as far as I am concerned.
