Effective Franchising leaders aren't disruptive forward-thinkers

Today's newspaper reads, "Wanted: Disruptive Forward-Thinker, Charismatic Leader to Head NRG's $6B Home Energy Business". The company is trying to attract unconventional thinkers.

I wonder how well disruptive thinking would work in franchising. I suspect that this kind of leader would last only a few days. Franchising wants plugged in people who can duplicate what they see as proven success. People who are too far ahead of the curve need not apply. Copy cats wanted. And they want communicators who can persuade those who don't agree that their way is the best course of action.


the ONLY thing he cares about is the share price. KFC is dying in the USA under his leadership.
