Heidi's Predictions and Observations...for Season Two
Check back each week for Heidi's commentary!
Donald Trump said it best when he stated that leaders who want to be loved will not make it. Actually, I think he was talking to Jen M. I do not know if no one likes Jen or they perceive her to be the biggest threat. I personally find her as exciting as watching paint dry. However, she definitely shines in the boardroom and for some reason every project manager appears to be afraid of her.
You know I was thinking the same thing as Mr. Trump. The bottle would be great as a dumbbell not a new and exciting soda bottle. Not only was the concept confusing but the design was impractical. How would it fit in a vending machine or even a cup holder? I think all of that sugar left Andy delusional.
Andy: While I agree that cash incentives can be motivating, working on an empty stomach equals unhappy workers and unhappy workers produces a strange looking bottle like the one Mosaic created. The bottle, however, was not the reason you were fired. Why did you let Sandy dominate in the boardroom? You seemed tired and defeated... I think your sugar high came to a crash in the boardroom because if this was any indication of how you performed on a national debate team then Donald was right to say YOU ARE FIRED. On the bright side, you definitely stood out in the series as a sharp, creative player who lasted longer than anyone anticipated.
Sandy: I thought your presentation was quite awful, however, you dominated in the boardroom and because of your tenacity and spunk you are still in the game. If you keep it up I can see you going far in this game.
Jen: I disagree with your fellow candidates about you not being the sharpest tool in the box. In fact, you are probably the smartest one in the bunch. You know how to play the game. I have to admit your personality is about as entertaining as watching the weather channel but your style is the reason why you are still in the game.
Kelly: Congratulations on making it to the final four. Your design for Pepsi Edge was unique, creative and functional. Do me a favor though... next week please put a t-shirt on if you are going to answer the phone in the morning! :)
Kevin: I guess you find presenting a campaign to hundreds of executives less intimidating than presenting to a panel of three. Your presentation was smooth, to the point and without all of the sweat.
