I find it hillarious and ironic that Oester didn't even last a year (compared to the
many years that he lasted under Bowden... In fact, Bowden never fired him, Oester quit).
However, I bet Bowden had a much better ability to work with independent and/or dissenting
opinions that DanO does. I do believe Oester that DanO wants to surround himself with "yes men".
That's very distressing, as it means the Reds will probably never do anything innovative under DanO's
What makes you think it was between DO and not Naehring? Naehring is Oester's supervisor and seems to be the person deeming his dismissal necessary.
As for surrounding one's self with "yes" men, it is a false assumption that following the direction of one's superiors starves innovation. The wise subordinate innovator provides ideas within the company's political structure. He might even humble himself and let the superior think that the innovation was his idea if it will make the organization succeed. The foolish subordinate innovator throws out his chest and pridefully refuses to kiss anyone's butt. The organization that he purports to care about and wants to help doesn't ge t the benefit of his innovation.
