Corporate America the Correct way

Talked to a good friend/client today.  He's an officer in a fair sized regional corporation.  Originally he was hired as a manager of one of the company's factories that was losing money.  In, I believe, a year and a half he turned it around.  I asked him about it.

"It wasn't too hard, really.  Yes, there were people that had to go, but mostly I worked with everyone bottom to top to educate them where they fit in and how what they did for the company made a difference.  Once someone knows how the system works, they'll bend over backwards to make it work and suggest ways to streamline and save money."

I'm only a lawyer, but to me it's that simple. I'm proud to have him as a friend and client.
