[DareObasanjo:QOTD] On Blogging and Corporate Self Esteem

by M. David Peterson

Dare Obasanjo aka Carnage4Life - Robert Scoble: First Corporate Face Transplant?

At the end of the day, who wants to work at the kind of company that is worried that it's employees will become too popular and may get stolen away? Microsoft isn't that kind of company and that's one of the reasons it is a great place to work. If a company is so worried about employees becoming too visible then it probably has deeper personnel problems than just worrying about losing a few bloggers.


Amen to that!

Any time management lives in fear of the employees, the company is already dead and doesn't know it.

Totally agree!


I must admit it feels pretty good each time I come to discover that my own conclusions on such things are in general aligment with your own...


Adds nicely to the confidence level that, in fact, in some strange way I might actually have my head screwed on straight in at least one or two areas of my life. ;)


Thanks Len!

An employee becoming too popular is good so long that the employee makes it clear that he/she is speaking on behalf of his company and respect the company policies. A win-win situation for the Corporate self esteem.
