made-up jobs: the flake-o-metre

Tuesday 3rd July 2012

I could be a Flake-o-meter. My job would be to detect flakiness in employees. After all, it takes one to know one. Or I could use my hyper-sensitivity to assess organisational climates to determine how creative companies are. Basically, I’d be like a canary in a coal mine:  if I walk into a company and burst into tears, the climate is bad.

T told me an true story, about C., who works at Happy People, a consultancy that helps companies improve companies’ organisational cultures, who was ready to quit because of the toxic influence of one of their employees. When he quit, everything improved. See, I could have helped there.
