I wonder who will leave faster, the remaining employees or customers? Newly found swagger only goes so far when you’ve kept leadership that lacks vision and has never worked outside the industry. They bring the same dinosaur thinking that got us in this mess. But they’ll keep telling KC what he wants to hear, then go back to golfing and drinking with reps instead of working.
Decisions on who stayed were based on tenure and geography, not what newer people who came from outside the industry could potentially do to turn the sinking ship around. Group think will continue, and the most influential leadership in the org will continue with status quo and it will trickle down to their people. If you challenge anything, ask questions, or come up with new ideas, you’ll be let go in the next reorg. Which will happen again because the people making the decisions on territory and alignment lack business acumen. And they don’t like anyone smarter than them to stick around.
In the meantime, my manager will never go to campus (per usual) and be picking her kids up from the bus at 3. While expecting me to visit all 10 of my schools in one week. So PEARSON is the sh–. And sh– isn’t going to change because the remaining people can’t change their way of thinking, despite the hours wasted on talking about it.
