Years ago, as a general manager in the insurance business, my company hired a new president. He was a charmer, flying into the district, taking everyone to lunch and dinner, saying all the right things and making you feel good.
 He said things would change. The sky is the limit. He was very likable with his big smile and great personality, but he had one fault – no experience in the business. Well, things did change. The company had five bad years, and he was fired. However, we all paid a heavy price. Again, he was a nice guy, but was an empty suit as far as results are concerned.
Sound familiar? We made a four-year mistake in 2008, but shame on us if it becomes an eight-year mistake.
