No one likes getting found out -- especially if you're a CEO working undercover to find out what it's really like to be a worker in your company. But when Harlan Kent, the president and CEO of the Yankee Candle Company, found his cover blown in "Undercover Boss" this week, it was an opportunity to demonstrate the kind of cool-headedness people want in a chief executive. The revelation marked the first such outing during the current season, the third for the CBS series. A similar incident occurred last season, according to the network.
