    The dude who wrote that guru-tome for MBAs ranted against gays in the military. So much for getting the best out of your people, Steve.

    I was once in an office where they forced us to spend our lunch window (i.e., the 2-hour 11-1 stretch that was the only time in which we were permitted to take our lunch break) watching a 2-hour film where this guy droned on and on about his business-guru shit. We were secretaries, mostly - who had zero pull in the company and zero ability to put any of this into action, and zero ability to protest, and they stole our lunchtime to make us listen to this crap.

    But I instigated a minor act of defiance. The idjits left the phone in that conference room, and didn't monitor us. (This was back in the Dim Time before everybody carried a phone.) On my lead, we called a nearby pizza joint, pooled our resources, and had our damn lunch catered right in the meeting room, completely ignoring the film.

    (I also MSTied the film at one point. Covey kept repeating a phrase: "You must be a missionary to your office, and bring this idea back!" "You have to be missionaries!" I murmured, "What's your position on missionaries?" and broke up the room.)

      Now that's the way to turn lemons into lemonade!
