The doctors were impressed with Mikey’s medical acumen and even those docs who didn’t place orders right away invited him back for follow-up meetings. After a while, though, it seemed like the glitter was outpacing the guts. Mikey’s suits kept getting sharper and sharper and the catered lunches kept getting fancier and fancier and he seemed to be spending more and more time out in the field. But there seemed to be less and less to show for it in terms of sales numbers. At first, his supervisor suspected that Mikey might be skimming, but an internal audit turned up nothing suspicious.

The situation was approaching mutiny. One Friday, a few senior staffers got together and decided to come up with ideas over the weekend and then meet on Monday to decide what action should be taken. The next Monday morning, when Caroline again failed to show up for the morning meeting, the work group began discussing how to inform the human resources department— when, to everybody’s amazement, Caroline, bedecked and beaming, bounded into the room bearing gourmet coffee and pastries and sat down, ready for business as usual.
