Preventing Presidential Derailment

  • Do you know the 10 early warning signs?

    Patrick Sanaghan, Kathy Gaval, Steve Riccio, and Steve Titus review the early signs of a derailing president in this paper informed by decades of experience from university presidents and professionals who work closely with them.

    Presidential derailments (defined by Stephen Trachtenberg as an exit in less than three years) are occurring with greater frequency—and the early signs that a presidency is off the rails are remarkably similar across dozens of cases. This paper will review those signs, as well as advice for new presidents and four steps to take if the early warning signs appear.

Section 2: Spin Straw into Gold

If you're in a pinch and have a murderous king who is demanding that you spin straw into gold overnight or have your head cut off, don't worry, we're here to help and save your head.

The gold we create from straw is 100% authentic gold, and is backed by our personal guarantee. Your murderous king won't be able to tell the difference between our StrawMade™ gold and the real thing. The crazy, brutal, bipolar king will be so happy with the gold, that instead of chopping off your head, he'll make you his queen instead!

  • No Job too Large

    If you've got just a small tower room filled with straw, or a whole gigantic hall, we can convert it all to gold.
