What To Do About Osmo Vänskä’s Threat And Failure Of Leadership
There is only one realistic answer.
Harvard Business School and Stanford Business School advise enterprises—as a cardinal rule—always to accept threatened resignations . . . with IMMEDIATE effect.
All other courses of action are destined to fail, and fail miserably, both short-term and long-term.
The course is now set. Going forward, as long as Vänskä remains in Minnesota, there will be nothing but trouble, into perpetuity.
Update of Sunday, May 5, 2013, at 5:36 p.m. C.D.T.:
Apparently Vänskä does not like this post.
And apparently he does not like the comments, either.
Vänskä is especially irate over this particular comment, of all things, which he forwarded to four persons, complaining vociferously.
One of the message recipients telephoned my father a few minutes ago, to let my father know of Vänskä’s concern.
Why Vänskä would single out that particular comment for objection is beyond me.
Might I suggest that in future Vänskä go easier on the vodka?
