... is par for the course where I work.
We recently began a major, new corporate initiative. I think. The only way I found out about it was someone at the worker level mentioned it on our social networking app, asking if anyone knew more than the name and a simple blurb she saw in the newspaper.
She was immediately told by a representative of leadership that she needed to take the conversation offline, onto private email.
Yes. Of course.
How in the world does anyone expect to lead if they won't communicate? I'm convinced that 90% of all leadership positions are occupied by people who just want the title and the cash. They have not a speck of interest in actual leadership, they're just climbers.
