Completely Agree Alfred - for example, when program/projects negotiate to turn 'red' indicators to 'green' to make the program team look better in front of a steering committee. This can lead to surprises when results are ultimately not delivered as expected, and missed opportunity to leverage the power of the steering committee to help solve the problem.
Absolutely agree Eric. Have seen first-hand how top talent have left companies because of constant 'lets do more positivity training' rather than looking at better ways of working, or working together or addressing issues - both in terms of their hands being tied when dealing with staff or the organisation as a whole. It's a Stepford-wives falsehood that doesn't address issues that need to be sorted out for businesses and individuals to grow
