A bit off my main focus, but this article on Davos Man (Woman) embracing blogging just doesn’t seem to jive with me. Wouldn’t consider it must reading. Most of these CEOs would have their communications / PR hacks write it up anyway. What’s novel and new about that? It’s the old one-way model.
Many organizations are still struggling with the fact that their customers are increasingly calling the shots and control the conversation. Being hard wired with the need for power and control that’s brought them to their positions in the first place this is just anathema to them. Also, imagine the blood pressure level rising among the brigade of corporate lawyers at the thought that the CEO would air it all out in a blog.
Anyway, the only CEO blog letting it all hang out is this one!
