Mandating the many

Somewhere along the march to compliance, someone decided that mandating the specific actions of all managers was the preferred route to protect against a very small proportion who might damage people or performance.

It was never going to work.

And leads to the infantilization of managers, as captured in the common HR resistance to change:

I can’t let managers do that, they don’t know how and will get it wrong

The vast majority of managers are decent human beings who want to see their teams flourish, perform and grow. The vast majority of managers know how to manage better than anyone in HR. The vast majority of managers carry huge organizational tax complying with HR’s impossible premise of mandating the many.

Destruction HR is about demolishing that unnecessary tax burden.
