Companies are paying up to $15,000 per day to hear this consultant’s advice about quiet quitting.
- There is a massive demand for corporations to understand the phenomenon of quiet quitting—where workers put in the bare minimum without going above and beyond.
- Dean Lindsay is one of many consultants who offers solutions in what he sees are the six Ps of progress: pleasure, peace of mind, profit, prestige, pain avoidance, and power.
- “Quiet Quitting Keynote Speaker is this search-savvy consultant’s new moniker, and he says it’s helping him get hired by companies sweating the latest buzzy term for employee disengagement,” says The Wall Street Journal.
- “When he saw the viral TikTok phrase had quickly migrated from social media to the C-suite, compelling many bosses to think about how to stop workers from checking out, he didn’t hesitate to rebrand, swapping out his name on LinkedIn for something catchy and of-the-moment,” the Journal continues.
- Many motivational speakers and consultants are moving into this space to try and address the phenomenon—seeing that corporations are desperate for answers.
Why it’s important
Employers and employees are sensing the tension at the current moment and trying to find ways to make work more engaging and passionate for workers so that they do not fully check out. With the “great resignation” ongoing, employers need their employees and they need them eager and willing to work.
Quiet quitting is not new. There have always been workers who show up for a paycheck and leave at the end of their shifts. The difference is that Gen Z is actively aware of the disconnect between where they are and where they want to be. They don’t find belonging in their company cultures and don’t believe in the work they’re doing.
“Mr. Lindsay, who has been advising businesses about corporate culture for two decades, says quiet quitting is closely related to burnout, work-life balance, stress management, and other phenomena that came before. His prescriptions are largely the same, too,” says the Journal.
Companies have responded either by “quiet hiring” employees who are willing to work above and beyond the baseline or reducing employee significance, lightening the workload, and “quiet firing”.This productivity paranoia from employers has also led to a higher degree of employer surveillance.
