Before HBS
“The cafeteria food isn’t good”
Now
“When are they going to hire a third sushi chef?”

Before HBS
“I hid in the broom closet to avoid an annoying coworker.”
Now
“I led a cross-functional team that streamlined the operations of HR which both reduced WIP and implemented a compensation scheme that aligned incentives. Then, following honest feedback, the difficult employee was ethically fired and I promoted myself to CEO.”

You are smart
Now
You are stupid

Before HBS
You suspect consultants do something
Now
Consultants believe they have done everything. Yet, have done nothing.
