Re: The firm: does it hold the answers to teamworking and morale?
Firms would wither in this age of individualism.
Firms that thrived in past had a wise head leading it; collective responsibility was cherished and self sacrifice was applauded not derided.
In firms, good and bad decisions had ownership and learning from mistakes is encouraged without a sword hanging over the head.
But the firms of the past would not survive the current “age of individualism”. Now individual rights reign supreme without even a symbolic nod to group responsibility. Good firms place patient needs first and hence is incompatible with a clock watching culture.
