    The Southwest region is doomed due to the "mini me" RSD who wants everyone to do what he does- work on spreadsheets every day. Forget people only numbers matter

    Patients don't matter either anymore to the salesforce....It's just prescriptions at almost any price...

    I feel for you peeps in the SW but until you have to work for/with the jerk Jon Coktoasten, you have no idea what bad leadership is. He thinks he can do what he wants because he looks like Jason Priestly.

    It's up to you and your team to get rid of him! Smile at him and stab him in the back! Get creative! Work with your team mates. Make his life miserable. Flood his email box! Spread rumors! Make the ride alongs hell for him! Call him endlessly about petty stuff, so he doesn't get anything done. Drop him off in the middle of nowhere.

    Does he drink coffee in the car? Do a couple rabbit starts and do some sudden braking so he will spill coffee on his pants or even better his computer. Its all good and justified. The end justifies the means! Let us know how it goes. Any DM can be de-installed, it just has to be the focus of your daily activity, not sales!!

    Like I said before, I have gotten rid of 3 DSMs in my career. I am an expert at that! As a matter of fact, it's the only thing I do well. I can't sell squat and I can't get out of bed in the mornings. Look what time it is now. I still should be at work, and I have been home for hours. You have more power than you realize, but you have to work smart!! It takes work, but is is it worth it? Absolutely!!

    Coktoasten is a beast. He has 9 lives plus I think he hooked up with HR rep years ago. Don't forget he is very handsome which goes a long says in this industry.

    Is he banging a chick from HR to cover up abuse? Document everything, dates, times, locations...your attorney will need this information when the time comes...look toward a hefty settlement to keep your mouth shut...if you can substantiate and prove misconduct.

    Hey, I did some research on this guy, there is a Sunovion thread “Coktoasten Fired” from April 21, 2017 4:15 PM “due to inappropriate relationships” at work.

    But I am sure you knew this already!! Of course, the idiots at Otsuka hire him!! Our leaders are so pathetic!

    Good luck to you, my friend, I have a feeling you are a female rep...if you need help, keep posting here. Like I said before, I have gotten rid of 3 bad DMs...You are talking to an expert at manager removal.

    Actually, I am not a female but that changes nothing. I can admit that Jon is quite handsome but not a good leader. When you look into his blue eyes you will see what I mean

    Otsuka's sales leadership is not a disappointment...it's a TOTAL JOKE!!! But I totally agree with everything else you said. You should be at least an RD if not VP of sales and clean up this organization from DSM on up!!! Hopefully you go far in your career!
