LIES: a two-day course

There’s no analyst relations angle to this post. I was just looking through the email summary of this month’s Harvard Business Review when, over to the right of my gmail page, I saw this headline: LIES: a two-day course.

You can click on the screen-shot on the right to see the advert: it’s the second advert down.

The course discusses Leadership, Innovation & Enterprise Skills, from which the initials LIES come. Surely, it cannot be accidental. No-one can overlook that, especially when using it as the opening word of an advert.

So, the suggestion is that lies are, in some way, part of leadership skills. What a disaster.

P.S. Indeed, it’s a conscious choice: read this.
