The Corporate Matrix: Going for a New Career or for a New Life?
The future of Talent Scouting might change. Are you ready for the red pill?
Last week I was watching The Matrix again with my two boys. Enjoying the beautiful dialogues I realise this movie (1999) contains a lot of valuable insights for us today. Especially for those working as Talent Scout, searching for the leaders of the future…
Morpheus: Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?
Neo: The Corporate Matrix.
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
Morpheus: The Corporate Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your car window or when you turn on your computer. You can feel it when you go to work… when you are in a meeting… when you prepare a Quarterly Review or your next business plan. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else in the corporate world you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.
