Strange motivational tools at work

Be happy that your boss has different motivational tools:

A supervisor at a motivational coaching business in Provo [Utah] is accused of waterboarding an employee in front of his sales team to demonstrate that they should work as hard on sales as the employee had worked to breathe.

In a lawsuit, the salesmen alleges a supervisor drew mustaches on employees' faces, took away their chairs and beat on their desks with a wooden paddle.

Why?

"Because it resulted in increased revenues for the company."
