I think there’s a spin off programme on BBC9 or something . Instead of that f-ing cafe, the “project manager” does some feedback sessions 1:1 with their team members to discuss performance where use of that “shit sandwich” method is compulsory; then there’s some 360-degree feedback forms to fill in and a team member engagement survey.
This new programme would last all year where no-one is fired until the 364th day when it is too late to do anything about their performance. I’d also then ensure the “project manager” puts all their feedback/survey results in a drawer and does nothing with them until month 11 when a few token changes are implemented.
The “project manager” will get to go to some slick conference venue where they are skilled in “how to sort your team out using hypnosis and ropey psychometric tools” and come back fired up for a week then slip back into old ways – just with a greater sense of delusion than before.
They would then clumsily deliver a briefing about change when half their team aren’t even there and send out a few emails asking everyone to raise their game.
I’d call this new programme #theworkplace.
