He just doesn't have any tact.
"Well let me tell you something..." is the verbal equivalent of drawing back your fist. I mean damn, you don't have to go to executive training to know that.
I'm not going to say that it will interfere with his ability to be a great GM - afterall, that attitude and style can be put to good use if it's directed in the right fashion.
But it is certainly different and is probably going to be offputting to many of us at times.
If he doesn't win in the next 3 years, just wait - he'll get that 'arrogant prick' tag just as badly as Pioli did.
It's just something worth watching, that's all. If he handles everyone like that, he's going to have some unhappy staff and I'd really hate to see that. I think that's part of the problem with the Pioli regime, that poison atmosphere really does trickle down to all parts of the team, including the roster. I hope we don't have that again, even if it's by accident.
