Kill It With Formality

Today the boss's boss quoted his boss to us. The boss's boss's boss told the boss's boss that in order to communicate correctly and thoroughly, "Kill it with formality."

The boss's boss communicated this to us all with no sense of irony.

At this point, I think killing it with formality is the company mantra. The sad thing is, formality is a broad-spectrum pesticide. Along with uncertainty and indecision, it kills innovation and joy.

This post I think exposes a core weakness in large organisations (like the military for example) where the most important objective is to keep everything under tight control. I think in their case control, rather than openness, creativity, innovation and joy comes first.
