In a previous post we featured an old CIA manual on how to sabotage the workplace. It showed how to reduce organizational productivity.
Some of these ideas are now clearly out-dated; but many are still familiar. The post spread like wildfire on our social media channels. It taught how to sabotage the workplace, how to resist change, and how to use traditions and politics to maintain the status quo.
Fortunately, NASA, another American agency, shows us the opposite. In the 1980s they transformed the organization by fostering rebel thinking and fighting the status quo.
