Gawd yes. I’m a low-level cog, but the “career development tool” wants me to answer questions like I’m a stinkin’ mid-level manager. I’m not going to “drive innovation” or “create followership”. I’m a trained monkey who pushes a button. It’s a damned joke. But if you knew as many HR people like I have, you would understand exactly how it got that way.
Remember, Adolph Eichmann worked in HR.
In a lot of cases, the managers (ie people over you) are just trying to get and gather ideas to put on their OWN performance review form.
Some of the manager level ees are so dense they can’t come up with stuff on their own. At least, that’s been my observation.
“drive innovation or create followership. “
I haven’t been in a big corporate environent for a decade or so.
It appears that things have gone awry........
