This has been Cain’s approach to leadership ever since he left his job at Godfather’s Pizza 16 years ago. He immediately founded a company called T.H.E. Inc, or The Hermanator Experience, and after several years running the National Restaurant Association, he basically became a full-time self-promotor. Instead of leading actual companies, he sold pamphlets on leadership, and books on leadership, and he gave speeches on leadership. He sold the idea of leadership.
