It doesn't matter how good a CEO is, if someone isn't doing their job like they should, then everything fails. If the employees do the best job they can and the CEO takes the company into the abyss, then everyone loses. Employees are wealth builders for the company, not just a commodity that is an expense that should be kept at the lowest level. That mentality is why a man will build up a company just to have his son run it into the ground. The man knew he couldn't do it by himself and it required everyone working together and being on the same page, whereas the so considers himself self sufficient and doesn't realize that he isn't and that he requires a team that he is the coach of. This is why employees should be valued and receive fair company and the CEO shouldn't get it all and throw the employees a dried up rotten bone.
