“If you want to give a man credit, do it in writing. If you want to give him hell, do it over the phone” – Lee Iacocca

This is old school advice but it’s more relevant now than ever before.  Negative comments can be replicated now exponentially and they last forever on the web.

It’s a cowardly thing to blast somebody anonymously on social networks.  And when you decide to own it and sign your name, then a decision made in a moment of heated emotion can last a long time.

When the news is bad, or the situation dire, you need to be there, own it and be discrete.  When the news is good, tell everyone!
