For the last couple of months the wheels have been coming off Robert’s life. Since he is the “face” of his employer, and there has been an admission of alcoholism, and others say drugs as well, is Robert still an asset to them?
As a founder, I would be troubled that the person who is the “face” for my brand is now becoming more known for other things, but I am not in Silicon Valley, so I wonder, can he come back from this 60 day sabbatical and still have influence, or has he damaged himself too much?
Let me be clear, we all want him well. I am not speaking in that regard, but just from the employer/employee aspect.
