MOTW: Myth Propagator Manager

Myth Propagator Manager’s motivational techniques rely on describing scenarios for his/her staff which depict much better working conditions in the very near future. Such speeches are usually filled with phrases like, “transitory phase, temporary rough patch, better times ahead, turning the corner soon, etc.”

Unfortunately, while this approach may have been effective in the past, today’s corporate drones are much more jaded, impatient and far less loyal, especially when the company is doing extremely well and the staff does not see these results translated into any benefit for them. Suffice it to say that either Myth Propagator Manager’s techniques or days are numbered, whichever you prefer.
