Speak your mind
We’ve heard plenty of tales of how hard people find it to say what they’re honestly thinking in organisations.
In Delta7, we fondly call this picture ‘The Blofeld Chair’ – a reference to the archetypal lever-operated chair used by arch-villains in Bond films to dispose of henchmen who have incurred their displeasure.
We’ve heard stories of people who practically roast anyone who dares to disagree but more often than not the threat is less overt and takes the form of a pressure to just agree and not rock the boat. ‘If you’re not with us, you’re against us’ is a gentle reminder that questioning or disagreement is considered negativity.
Have you ever found yourself sitting in The Blofeld Chair? How did it feel? And what did you do?
