Can we handle the truth?

October 11, 2007

This excerpt from Truth in Advertising (via Johnnie) made me laugh, particularly following on from our conversation about the shadow side of organisations. My initial thoughts after laughing at it were that life would be extremely difficult and unpleasant if we all told the truth all of the time, so shadow material has its role as a useful way of managing what we don’t want to confront. Anyway, forget the analysis – just laugh!
