Welcome to Two Envelopes

Welcome to Two Envelopes

The newly hired C level Executive finds a note from his predecessor taped neatly to the white board behind his trendy stand up desk:

“There are two envelopes in the upper drawer.

When you are in trouble for the first time, open the first envelope.

When you are in a big trouble for the second time, open the second envelop”.

In a couple of months & a bad quarter he found himself in trouble, nervous he looked for and opened the first envelope the one he recieved from his predecessor and read:

“Shift the blame onto me”.

He did so and got out of trouble, by buying himself some more time.

After a botched launch and delayed revenue growth years he found himself in hot water once again and opened the second envelop.

It said: “Prepare two envelopes”
