When the counter-trend emerges…..

I always love to predict when a countertrend will emerge to challenge the mainstream thinking – guess an economic crisis is guaranteed to severely test organisational values and few organisations can withstand a true test of integrity because it’s not one person. Here is a fascinating read on what I’m calling the emergence of the Engagement backlash. I thought you will be very interested to read it- some very interesting folks participating in the debate. See http://authenticorganizations.com/harquail/2010/05/10/3-reasons-why-employee-…

And it comes right alongside the emergence of new trends….eg
>> The Democratic Workplace

>> The Authentic Organisation

>> The emotional brand (scan the blog entries)> http://theengagingbrand.typepad.com/

Coincidence that a lot of these correlate to a rise on female power and leadership? Who knows…I don’t…but as a trend-watcher, I am calling it…..What do you think? Food for pause?

  1. Thanks for the recommendation Maverick Woman, as I believe the Engagement Backlash has been on a slow simmer for a while now.On my way to check it out.
