Whatever are people thinking when they are two-faced? Are they really thinking that people are stupid and can’t see the forest for the trees?
When meetings take place surreptitiously, behind closed doors and blinds, suspicion builds. I was working with a finance department for a major agency. The director was well-known…and feared…for her supposed ‘open door’ policy. Loudly she proclaimed that anyone at any time was welcome to come and speak with her in her office. She declared that she wanted open communication and everyone feeling able to talk with her. Sounds great. So, what was the problem?
