I once heard a journalist describe the research method for a book he was writing. As with many of our best authors, journalists enter each new field completely uninformed about a topic and then make it their business to find out the “real story” underlying the subject matter. He mentioned that an advisor had once wisely told him to “find out what they're afraid of, and you'll have your story.” The story for us today, even among those of us who have “moved to Detroit,” is that people fear losing the comforting things they're familiar with. We cling to some of the remnants of our durable networks of people despite their decreasing social mobility rewards and are suspicious of specialization, process automation, and leaderless growth, despite their spectacular growth potential for people and organizations.
