story about former IBM CEO Thomas Watson: When once one of his employees did badly wrong, the company lost $ 600,000. A journalist wondered, when the guy would get fired. Watson denied, and instead stated calmly: “I just invested $ 600.000 in an employee’s education. Why should somebody else get this experience for free?”
