    When will corporate leaders realise that sending condescending missives to the minions on such matters is a poor substitute for living those ideals themselves. Leaders lead by example, not by fiat and exhortation. If you want to change the culture of a company, embody it yourself, display it through action, and over time it will seep into every level of the organisation.

    How can you possibly have a meeting with 200 people?

    Leaving aside the outrageous fact that people get paid for producing this rubbish at corporate love-ins, and that we are saddled with a generation of managers who have no ‘domain knowledge’ of anything much at all, is there any need to ever write a new values statement again? This statement is semantically indistringuishable from that produced by every major corporation, government department and, probably, preschool in the country. Just put it on the web with an unrestricted licence and we can save ourselves some executive bonuses.
