Over the years, the Staples Elite have created a culture at Staples which is so toxic and so politically corporate correct, their is no possible chance of resuscitating this once admired company. Instead of surrounding oneself with Indian's who can think on their own, the CEO has surrounded himself by the obligatory corporate spineless pinheads who are afraid to come to actually listen to the "doer's" in the field. This is the reasoning why Management was so blindsided by store sales falling off the cliff. The former retail president was in way over his head! He has never had a clue! Spineless, bumbling kiss #$%$ who embarr#$%$ed himself on each Earnings call with Wall Street. What's so egregious, he stayed in a position of power for ever. Scary! Even in the late 80's, early 90's, when he was promoted to an HR Regional Manager, it wasn't because he was smart, he had the brownest nose. So,ODP will not save SPLS. Rather RS has to take a look at all levels of Leadership and start asking some tough questions.
