“Too often, the corporate world pushes talking points onto people, and more often than that, speakers and writers get nervous and they turn into parrots. The only reason to go through the hassle and risk of putting yourself out there is to be out there… you, not a clone.” – Seth Godin
And the way “the corporate world pushes talking points” more often than not, is by the KPI’s and measurement systems that are in place. If you want to see the old cliche “You get what you measure” in terms of human behaviour then the corporation is an excellent place to look.
Are you doing and behaving because you believe in what you’re trying to create, improve, contribute or are you doing and behaving to meet KPI’s and expectations of bosses, peers, organisations …… ?
