Lessons from the nuns!

Lessons from the nuns
It seems most people forget that Catholic nuns are both entrepreneurs and leaders.These women have run hospitals and grade schools and were among the very first female presidents of universities. They have been sitting in management positions for the past century. Nuns are collaborators, delegators and team players. They don't rule with an iron fist. In fact, they do just the opposite. Over the past three years, Jo Piazza set out to shatter the stereotypes about nuns while reporting and writing a new book, `If Nuns Ruled the World: Ten Sisters on a Mission.' Along the way, the nuns helped the author become a much better manager and leader.

Who knew that Sony's brass, a line-up of mostly white male executives, earn $1 million and more a year? Or that the company spent half a million this year in severance costs to terminate employees? Now we all do, since about 40 gigabytes of sensitive company data from computers belonging to Sony Pictures Entertainment were stolen and posted online. As so often happens with breach stories, the more time that passes the more we learn about the nature of the hack, the data that was stolen and, sometimes, even the identity of the culprits behind it. A week into the Sony hack, however, there is a lot of rampant speculation but few solid facts.
