Let’s talk through the problem. You’ve had lots of different experiences; you’ve been around in the world longer. Let me take the best and leave the rest. Let me just pick your brain.” That is a valuable thing in a reporting relationship that rarely gets used. RAY VIAULT, VICE CHAIRMAN, GENERAL MILLS” 0 likes
