Slide53 l.jpg

The “Paradoxes” of Business Today ideals –

…but try not to let customer service cut too deeply into profit margins

Treat customers well...

Create a diverse workforce...

Develop codes of ethics...

mainly rewards those who “make their numbers”

Go global ...

…but maintain the cultural

values of the home office


Slide54 l.jpg

The “Paradoxes” of Business Today ideals –

Network, network, network...

…but beware the Old Boys’ Club that can breed corruption

Empower employees...

…but monitor ‘em carefully because you’re legally liable for their behaviors

Play by the rules...

…but think outside the box.

  • In short all the unwieldy & unworkable apparatus of supposedly representative governments”…

  • "As the Second Wave produced a mass society, the Third Wave de-massifies us,………. moving the entire social system to a much higher level of diversity & complexity.

  • This revolutionary process, much like the biological differentiation that occurs in evolution, helps explain one of today's most noted political phenomena - the collapse of consensus."
