"them that can"t teach" .....
Well sometimes . . . I get paid to come back and teach an organizations employees how to do what I do!
One of my favorite examples from my early days as a technical sales person for a division of a multinational company involves the president of the division. I spent a lot of time on the phone with people across the US and handled all of the international sales. This guy comes though one day and tells me not to put people on hold when I needed to leave my desk while speaking with them. I said fine and that I would take the information gather what I needed and call them back. I was told that I would not do that under any circumstances because they were paying for the call and we would pay for the return calls. Since I shared an office with my immediate boss I said I would rather not just lay the phone down without putting it on hold. The president told me that was good because leaving the phone open might allow them to hear something in the office they should not hear. At that point my boss spoke up and asked what we were do since we could not do anything with the phone once it rang. The president told us both we needed to just do our job and how he told us to do it and stormed off in a huff. After a discussion with the COO, my boss and I had a good laugh at the expense of the president and continued as we had done before the "instructions" since we had not been told how to do our job but not to do our jobs.
