Not all CEOs are created equal. This might be the understatement of the yr in relation to WeWork CEO Adam Neumann, a moderately eccentric fellow, to say the least.

The Wall Road Journal not too long ago printed a characteristic about Neumann and his unorthodox management model fittingly dubbed, ‘This Is Not the Manner Everyone Behaves.’ How Adam Neumann’s Over-the-Prime Type Constructed WeWork.’

Whereas there have been some fascinating tidbits, maybe the one which stood out essentially the most — at the very least to cannabis shoppers — is how the WeWork CEO allegedly smoked and introduced weed on a flight to Israel. Unsurprisingly, very like his administration model, it was fairly weird, to say the least.

How the WeWork CEO Allegedly Smoked and Introduced Weed on a Flight to Israel

Based on the Wall Road Journal report, the WeWork co-founder and a gaggle of pals took a Gulfstream G650 personal jet to Israel final summer season. Neumann and his pals have been casually smoking cannabis all through the experience.

However that’s not the perfect half.

As soon as the group disembarked the plane, the aircraft’s crew “discovered a sizeable chunk of the drug stuffed in a cereal field for the return flight.” Like all clever toker with a little bit of foresight, Neumann was clearly considering within the long-term.

Contemplating the burgeoning authorized cannabis business, that is hardly an indicting incident. There are, in spite of everything, related co-working areas—modeled after WeWork—that cater to cannabis people who smoke. Nevertheless, it does give some perception into the eccentricities of one of many world’s fastest-growing corporations’ CEO.

Along with that marijuana-laced anecdote, there have been a lot of different, err, quirky tales in regards to the 40-year-old billionaire.

One significantly odd incident the WSJ recounted occurred after one of many firm’s mass layoffs. A couple of weeks after Neumann reduce ties with roughly seven % of his workers, he addressed his remaining staff in regards to the incident over tequila pictures…and Run DMC.

“Workers carrying trays of plastic shot glasses crammed with tequila got here into the room, adopted by toasts and drinks,” the report stated. “Quickly after, Daryl McDaniels of hip-hop group Run DMC entered the room, embraced Mr. Neumann, and performed a set for the workers. “

Clearly, the tune was “It’s Tough.”

The publication additionally famous the CEO as soon as claimed that “if he ran for something, it might be president of the world.”

Nuemann and his firm have, maybe unsurprisingly, refused touch upon the Journal’s report. Contemplating the corporate is about to go public quickly, it’s seemingly a “tough” scenario for all events concerned (Nailed it).
