The advice has resurfaced a day after a New Yorker reporter, Ryan Lizza, published a piece detailing the gratuitous, obscenity-laden phone call he got from the new White House communications director Wednesday night.
"I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own c---," says Scaramucci to Lizza, whom he called trying to find out who leaked information to the reporter. "I'm not trying to build my own brand off the f---ing strength of the president. I'm here to serve the country."
The point of the Big Think video was to give communication advice to leaders, such as using "we" instead of "me" when talking to your employees.
"When you're managing a company you have to speak in the right way because if I say 'me' and 'my' and 'I,' I'm going to lose people around me," Scaramucci says. "[Y]ou should really think about it, if you're running a company when the word 'team' is in your head, it's together everyone achieves more," he explains.
However, Scaramucci's communication skills are questionable, even in the Big Think video — the financier goes on to say how words have changed, using now-unacceptable terms to describe Asian-Americans and African-Americans as examples.
