Not in the mood to be Strawfished today though I appreciate your attempt.
I know what I just heard and what I just heard was 30 minutes of what a process-driven operations manager would say if he just took a new VP job at WalMart.
"It's a team effort."
"We're going to be collaberative."
"We are going to hit the ground running."
"It's the power of 'we'."
"Free agency will be thoughtful, judicious, full of research."
"Going to do a thorough review. Then short-term planning."
"My role is to develop consensus and provide direction."
"Every year is a clean slate."
"This is a great infrastructure."
"There is no discreet timetable for improvement."
"Develop a baseline, develop a course off of that."
"Every day is a new beginning."
"Pushing the envelope leads to sustainability."
"It's the power of "we" not the power of "me"."
Bill Parcells comes in here and says "we're not going to be a horses ass anymore" and John Idzik comes in here and just wrote the motivational t-shirt slogans for the next 10 years of training camp.
