Mars is to Venus as …….. Operations is to Corporate

During our last department meeting, our president announced that a new VP of Operations had been selected to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of our previous VP. She could not give us full details since nothing was official just yet, but she did tell us we would be happy with the choice because the person was “fun” and “motivating”. My heart sank. Our president was addressing a group of mostly scientists; how could she think these attributes would be enticing to us? This is not summer camp. We don’t want pep talks. We need to fill knowledge gaps.
