The article focuses on the traumatic residue, a result of the 2009 recession, that kills an organization's growth. Employees who are described as slackers and screw-ups drain a company's capacity for success. Practicing shake and fake without the intention of implementation is described to come from a reluctance to make mistakes. Projecting an image of being hardworking and busy when little is actually being achieved expends a lot of the company's time and resources. It highlights that great leaders know execution will bring about change and growth.
