Executives get frustrated that change is so hard to implement. Senior managers read Jack Welch’s books and fire the bottom 10 percent of performers. Amazingly, people just redistribute to the stages as other people leave. The company buys hundreds of copies of Who Moved My Cheese? or sends its people to time management training. On top of this tribal chatter, the CEO fights to make quarterly earnings, and the head of human resources wonders why trust and communication are always the weak points on the climate survey. People complain about “all the politics around here,” but despite money spent on training and time spent away from work, things never seem to change.
