A  Disrupted  Life 

by

Harold Beck

Company Portrait of HB

 

No life is perfectly straightforward.  Health problems, family upsets, economic setbacks, accidents, war and natural disasters are among the many circumstances which complicate lives.

The disruption caused by a scheme to train a top-level leader was something entirely different.  The covert basis of the scheme, the use of AOB (Advanced Organisational Behaviour) techniques and the behaviour changes demanded by the trainers ignored the Human Rights of the trainee.

Harold Beck tells his story as the trainee in the scheme, presents notes on current Talent Management thinking and practices and describes the results of his researches into AOB techniques.  He then analyses the AOB events applied during his training and postulates from the point of view of the trainers a Total Talent or Succession Management scheme based on the one in which he was involved.  The Human Rights issues associated with career development in general are then explored.
