I was intrigued recently by this Ted Talk. Margaret Heffernan says 85 percent of European and American executives are afraid of getting into arguments they don’t know how to manage. They’re afraid of looking stupid.
No wonder corporations have been described as psychopaths. They’re environments where everyone just goes along with what everyone else says.
