Business/Link: Story on 3 people to fire - immediately
Getting to Yes and Success: Pushing aside the people impediments to progress: 3 from Bloomberg/Business Week, plus one CM will add, the Human Chokepoint
By Ed Waggener
Found this story from November 8, 2011, in Bloomberg/Business Week by chance, today, and thought it applied to lots of things going on in the community: Projects, consultants, boards, governments, businesses, institutions: It's about the people who need to be fired for the sake of the enterprise, three easily recognized stereotypes.
There's a place for everyone, we guess. Click to Three Types of People to Fire Immediately. The link was still live today, Sunday, January 8, 2012, but may not be so at a later date. It sounds harsh, but it appears essential. We'd add a fourth stereotypical impediment: The human chokepoint: The person otherwise to be conceived as the backbone of the organization, with the "this place couldn't operate without," reputation -when the very opposite is true.
In reality, the person who is the reason why the enterprise fails, why the sales don't happen, why the news doesn't get reported, why entrepreneurship is stymied, why businesses don't open - the list is infinite.
They're the people who won't change and the organization would be better off to give the chokepoints a pa raise and a commendation, send them home, and let the willing do what ought to be done. It would be cheaper in the long run.
They're also the people who will do anything to keep their jobs - and therefore can't do their jobs. -EW.
