I totally agree. Musk may be a “tranformational leader,” simply because he “transforms” his leadership teams by transitioning them right out the door.

I’d giddily sign up to do custodial work at his company, while no amount of money could get me in the same building with the other guy. To him I say: Eat It.
Great article. You’re right – I’d rather work for the nice guy!!!
