The Death of an Idea
The more I think about the writings I have seen recently on meaning in the workplace, the more outdated they seem to me. These ideas of management empowering workers is so...well...old. Think about it for a moment. Is the world not moving away from the concept of worker, the idea of drones? And have we the people not moved beyond the limited mindscape of some management team letting us do something? It feels so WWII not Gen X and Gen Y. In a world of social media and small business and entrepreneurial spirit, even in large major corporations have we not moved beyond these rusted hulk ideas?
