Elon Musk Threatens To Fire Managers Who 'Don't Execute Directions' According To Leaked Emails

One word that is enough to give anyone anxiety in a matter of seconds is the word, ‘boss’, because let’s face it, most of them are the reason why you’re on the edge of your seat all the time.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk tells managers who don't execute orders or explain why he's wrong that they will have to "resign immediately," according to leaked emails obtained by CNBC.

The two emails were sent by Musk to "everybody" at Tesla during the first week of October. During that time, Tesla announced it delivered a record 241,300 vehicles during the third quarter of 2021, and "Full Self Driving Beta" was launched and later put on hold after safety concerns. The company also lost a lawsuit against a former Tesla employee who said he was racially harassed while working as an agency staffer.

Addressed to 'everybody', the message, which was sent on 4 October this year, explains what managers should do if they receive a direct order from him - with only three options available to them.

It reads: "If an email is sent from me with explicit directions, there are only three actions allowed by managers:
"1. Email me back to say why what I said was incorrect. Sometimes, I'm just plain wrong!
"2. Request further clarification if what I said was ambiguous.
"3. Execute the directions.
"If none of the above are done, that manager will be asked to resign."

Providing some context to the email exchange, CNBC, which first reported on the message, shared another email, which was sent the day before the one above.

It informed his staff that he supported their wish to play music in the factory and that he would listen to any other ideas they had to make the workplace more enjoyable.

His message read: "Just wanted to say that I very much support music in the factory, as well as any little touches that make work more enjoyable.

"An associate just sent me a note asking if we could have one ear bud for music so the other ear can listen for safety-related issues. That sounds fine to me.

"Also, ambient music from speakers is also totally cool so long as there is reasonable agreement among your colleagues as to the music choices.

"If there are other things that you think would improve your day, please let me know. I care very much that you look forward to coming to work every day!"

Since the emails were shared on social medial, people have been divided on how they feel about the tone of Musk's 'threat'.

Showing their agreement, one user commented: "What Elon said was perfectly fair and reasonable."

While another added: "This is pretty normal in tech. It's just not put into words so clearly. But if you ignore a request from the CEO in a tech company you are asking to get fired.... Any tech company!"
