Humorist George Carlin once said, “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” In the workforce, being an employee usually means balancing smarts with stupidity, but erring toward the latter. André Spicer, a professor of organizational behavior at City, University of London, brilliantly outlines a scenario that many newly minted graduates face when starting their professional lives: Their days of high intellectual achievement are over. getAbstract recommends this hilariously topical, yet highly relevant article to executives, managers and young professionals alike.
