“When it comes to interaction with employees, don’t be afraid to follow your heart. As a company leader, do not allow yourself to be directed solely by the opinions of others. I very much regret letting go of a very good scientist under the guise of making cuts in order to help the company’s bottom line. … He was a longstanding and trusted employee; I will always regret letting him go,” he said.
