Eight years later, it’s November 2019 and here is an updated version of this post…
The following passages may be useful for people in serious trouble in the workplace. You may have blown the whistle on bad practice, or lodged a grievance, or been going through internal processes, hoping that the next particular meeting will be THE ONE to resolve it all. But why is this NOT happening? It’s about good will on both sides, but very often, you can be treated as a ‘troublemaker’ and have become ‘the problem’ and therefore, in the twisted logic of those who abuse their power, the one to be eliminated.
These passages consist of several carefully written phrases which you can lift and use immediately, or maybe adapt, chop and change for your own purposes. Whatever you choose to do, they’re designed to provide inspiration and get the brain into gear.
There’s nothing worse than sitting in front of a blank piece of paper, or a blank screen, desperate for words.
Pick the ones that suit your situation, fill in the required words and names where there are dots. This stuff really works and can petrify stupid managers – stupid? What am I saying? Most of our managers are superbly intelligent, creative and inspirational beacons of light aren’t they? AREN’T THEY????????
