No one expects the boss of a big organization to be a shrinking violet.

... “If you’re in an executive suite, it’s a Darwinian struggle to get there,” notes author and business professor Karl Moore. “There’s a lot of competition, so you’re quite a good leader.” And being a good leader means contact with people. Lots of it. “We expect the CEO to be an extrovert,” Moore says. “If they get on an elevator we expect them to say hello and not look downcast and not to avoid human contact, or we say, ‘What’s happening to the share price? There must be terrible troubles.’

Dans la société nord-américaine, beaucoup de gens misent sur le couple pour être heureux. La relation amoureuse devient le baromètre de leur vie, un passage obligé dans l’évaluation de leur réussite en tant qu’être humain.

En los últimos años hemos asistido a una serie de cambios en la universidad española, entre los que destaca su creciente burocratización. Si bien es verdad que cuando hace una década se propusieron e introdujeron medidas que subrayaban la meritocracia, o promulgaban mejorar y normalizar en cierta medida los procesos de trabajo a través de organismos como la ANECA, en general estas fueron muy bien recibidas por la comunidad universitaria.

For a long time, one of Canada’s largest residential landlords, Canadian Apartment Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (CAPREIT), admittedly did better at managing its properties than its staff did. Its workers were disengaged and unhappy, and their managers were not providing the right sort of feedback. “People didn’t feel they were being recognized for their efforts, they didn’t feel any sense of accomplishment, and the work they did was kind of just seen as, ‘Oh, that’s your work,’ ” says Jodi Lieberman, vice-president of human resources.

The Berlin Wall fell 25 years ago; hence we are now hearing a good deal about it. We are not, however, hearing much about the adverse impact this has been having on so many lives ever since. While the collapse of the wall freed the East Berliners of the shackles of communism, vast numbers of people around the world have since been shackled by another dogma, thanks to a misunderstanding of what brought that wall down.
