Sure some firings are high-profile but do you honestly think lots of innocent people were not harmed years before the drama? Where were your “good” managers then? Pretty quiet about the abuse, I bet.
No one should be happy when anyone is fired.
People are made by their environment. They added and dropped skills as they were rewarded in their hierarchies: within a man-made corporate culture. And, in the end, they’re just just much more sad, scared and fearful than any franchisee I have ever met.
We all know that about bullies, don’t we?
Firing the ankles of the company is not necessarily proof of a re-formed system.
Corporate culture is a tough, next-to impossible thing to change that takes high priority and a budget that rivals marketing.
Look at the Hips: Don’t fall for a stupid ice hockey head fake. If there is no line budget item for re-form ($ and senior management time), how serious is this “change” anyway?
If it doesn’t jingle, it doesn’t count.
