Adam Morgan in his book "The Pirate Inside," talks a lot about how most organizations need 'denters.' That is people who collide with and therefore upset the dominant complacency of a company and by so doing try to effect change.
I have been, I guess I am by nature, a denter. I hate status quos and always think things can be better. I take denting seriously.
For a while companies welcome denters--because denters do the dirty work for the organization. But, again according to Morgan, denters need help. They need 'smoke-jumpers.' That is a fire-fighter who rescues the denter or gets them out of trouble when things get too hot.
I've been a denter at a lot of different agencies now.
I have yet to meet a smoke-jumper.
No wonder I'm out of work.
