CEO’s, Directors and top level leaders and managers in private and public organisations faithfully tow the party line. Many of them are faithful adherents to the party line for decades and decades. They discourage dissent from persons lower down the organisation by putting clamps on their ability to speak up on issues.
Come the day of their retirement and many speak up, often critical of the directions being followed by their organisations over years of operation.
One can but wonder!
And also wonder why those who declare that if they reach the top they will change things but when they get there, work to ensure the organisation becomes more impervious and harder to penetrate than before.
Maybe that has to do with lack of confidence and insecurity.
