Frankly I don’t care. Yahoo has gone so far to the “hate big business support socialism” side of the map I’m hoping they will just go ahead and sell what’s left. Could I have done better? Absolutely – because I know how to sell, know how to develop a team that’s excited to perform for me and I don’t cuss you during pep rallies.
Adios Bartz. You’ve just been fired: over the phone.
If you guys at Yahoo are ready for a CEO who believes in fostering an atmosphere of power and growth I’m available. Maybe not for you but I’m available.
Yahoo’s Bartz era: The non-stop drama in her own words
Carol Bartz joined Yahoo as CEO with high hopes, a few F-bombs and a no-nonsense style. But Bartz was ultimately sunk by a drama-go-round that never ended. Yahoo never quite got its act together even though Bartz made some solid moves to set the company on better footing.
I am very sad to tell you that I’ve just been fired over the phone by Yahoo’s Chairman of the Board. It has been my pleasure to work with all of you and I wish you only the best going forward.
