What is happening to America? Although we are still a major power, our chief product seems to be scandal and our biggest activity to assign blame. At work, especially, too many of us are in it for what we can get out of it. We treat people like objects and are indifferent to our collective future. Where will it all lead? And if we are indeed in grave danger, how can we rescue ourselves? As CEO of the leading international outplacement firm Drake Beam Morin, author Bill Morin has closely witnessed the distress (corporate and personal) wrought by downsizing and similar practices of the past decade. He has also grappled with challenges and change at his own fast-growing firm. Now, speaking from his unique viewpoint, Morin urges all of us in business to examine ourselves. It is time to reengineer our personal and corporate values, he argues, even as we reengineer our operations. The values at issue are not those of a particular political party, religion, or management philosophy. They involve dignity, civility, and a belief in the importance of one's work... all the things sorely missing from many businesses in recent years. Without them, we're just going through the motions and turning bitter about it. And this malaise and apathy eventually translate into a company -- and a country -- that is silently eroding from within.
