Carl. Nothing gospel about the words. If you can come up with about the same word count.... what we say is very much in flux. I just grabbed a few thoughts and threw them in. GG

I wonder if your first bullet might read a little better if the comma is replaced by a dash. Also, the statement, "management's attempt..." (following the comma or dash) addresses only one side of the resistance. Can we find a more generic statement (e.g., "sometimes it makes us want to throw up our hands (or bury our heads" or "sometimes it sparks resistance". Nice work, though; I like the way the first bullet aligns with the last ("you bet your life!). It gives the feel of two bookends on an idea or the first and last page of a book in which the opening dilemma is solved.
