    Blaming the victims is so 1990's.

    That "business psychologist" should have realized that loss of work identity requires grieving, and grieving requires some time and space.

    At my former dysfunctional employer "DysCo", all newly bought companies were stripped of their former identity, logo, messaging, branding, and heritage. As cuts were being made, and cost control was enforced, they published a hardcover book heralding the wonderful growth of the company over time, like some sort of corporate march to the sea, destroying everything in their wake. Then they wondered why morale was in the toilet, productivity was down, cynicism abounded. Oh... and customers of the former entities were also dazed and confused.

    Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.
