I am increasingly distressed by the tunnels of \u201cDilbertesque\u201d cubicles which shape the modern workplace. In theory these offices were designed to facilitate communication and enhance teamwork. But are they working? Employees rarely leave their stations. Emails and voice mails are the unwritten code of conduct. Face-to-face communication is rare. Meetings to share or brainstorm solutions have all but disappeared. Employees work diligently, receiving little feedback about their performance. Recognition of achievements is rare. People hesitate to express their opinions, never mind their feelings. When I ask clients why they don\u2019t speak up, I am told they are afraid or that it won\u2019t matter. I witness managers and employees speaking in muted shades of truth; people saying one thing and meaning something very different, lacking the courage to voice what is really on their minds.
