It’s Strictly Business: The Godfather Way of Surviving, Conniving and Thriving in features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading It’s Not Personal. Publisher: CreateSpace (March 23, ); Publication Date: March 23, worked for other people! especially if you’re are totally into The Godfather.
Since when was the scheduling of games at Junior B level the accepted metric for organisational incompetence? Whence comes this desire to compare such noble contests with the cancellation of Rugby World Cup games in the land of the rising sun? And the NBA. And the FAI. And FIFA. Take the mess surrounding the typhoon in Japan and its impact on Rugby World Cup scheduling. People have been quick out of the traps to ask what World Rugby was thinking of, settling on Japan in typhoon season as the best date for its tournament.
This misses the point entirely. There is no flexibility with the date because of the network of professional leagues and international games and commercial commitments around the globe. The backlash was immediate and overwhelming. Companies with ties to the NBA from travel agents to milk suppliers cut those ties, while there are also reports of shops in China ceasing to sell NBA tops.
Interesting, but not surprising.
Strictly business. No personal nonsense.

The scene begins with the camera positioned at a low angle, hovering just above ground level. We are transported into a setting never before seen, one that is fashionable, well-decorated, Art Deco-themed, and visually intriguing. We see the lone figure of Luca, whose back faces the camera, dressed in all black and ascending the stairs. His garments are dark-toned, contrasting with the surge of brightness that is the background. His looming stature fills up almost the entirety of vertical space from ground to ceiling, as he ascends with a casual, confident gait.
He is out of place—a dark, lonely figure situated among a landscape of brilliant white. The surrounding mirrors display his dark demeanor—his sober, calm professionalism—in multiple dimensions, but there seems to be one essential Luca. He is, indeed, a professional. He is a man sent out on a mission—a mission by Don Corleone.
From the previous scene, we already know that Luca is to prepare the bait, to feign discontent with the Corleone family, and to ultimately test the waters for this newly emerging character, Sollozzo. This is all a test. It is a test for Sollozzo—in the most obvious sense, we want to know if he can be trusted—but more so it is a test for Luca, our principal interest in this scene.
We cannot help having some stored attachment for this man, who first endears himself to us at the wedding with his poorly performed thank you to the Don. Thus, when Luca dies on an errand of loyalty, we register heavy tremors of shock.

The other day I was watching a documentary about Arthur Miller, the American playwright. For various reasons, I already knew quite a bit about him. After acting in the play I then went on to direct it twice. It was simply called Arthur Miller: Writer and it was made over a period of 25 years by his filmmaker daughter Rebecca Miller.

In , I was told by my employer that they had some bad news for me. Unfortunately for me, my job was one of them. I was shocked! Boy, was I wrong.

Over the years, I have observed that it is very common in family businesses for family members to hold the key positions. Sometimes, merit plays no part in the appointment. From an employment law perspective, this can cause difficulties as family favouritism is not recognised. And a successful unfair dismissal claim could cost the employer a basic six figure compensation award.
The other scenario seen in family businesses is where the eldest child is appointed over a younger sibling to run the business or where the male child gets the opportunity over his sister. This gives rise to potential age and sex discrimination issues which can be complicated. And with discrimination claims there is no limit to the compensation awardable!
So, the best advice is not to assume that a family business can simply appoint family members to key positions without proper consideration.

Sorry, Michael Corleone. You’re wrong. And so are all the corporate phonies who cite this pseudo-proverb from The Godfather as an excuse to avoid taking a genuine and substantial interest in the people around them. Too often, we gloss over the importance of depth, sincerity and trust in our business relationships simply because we’re too busy.
We think our time is better spent “getting stuff done.
