Malicious Compliance Birthday Cards

Last week it was my birthday.

The family now knows how I think.

Malicious compliance is well understood round here.

They got me these cards (twice).

There is no hiding place.

* Disclaimers……

1. Not the best ever piece of verse written for a birthday card, but I’m having a go.

2. The drilling in the pictures in no way represents my DIY abilities.

3. Neither does it represent any act of malicious compliance on my part (many years as a practitioner have taught me to be far more subtle).

So, what’s the PONT?

  1. Malicious compliance is not a difficult concept to understand.
  2. Some acts of malicious compliance can be very obvious (check out the links below).
  3. Don’t let your family read your blog, they will know how you think.

About WhatsthePONT

I'm from Old South Wales and I'm interested almost everything. Narrowing it down a bit: cooperatives, social enterprises, decent public services, complexity science, The Cynefin Framework, behavioural science and a sustainable future. In 2018/19 I completed a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship, looking at big cooperative enterprises and social businesses in NE Spain and the USA. You can find out more here:
