“Corporate America must now take a dose of strong medicine”

“Corporate America must now take a dose of strong medicine”

I do not know many who like being scolded in private but in public, an individuals’ pride can swell and feelings can be hurt quickly if they have to take such a lashing.

If you have not heard by now, President-elect Trump has given the GOP a twitter lashing.  And he has not stopped there.  He has hit corporate America just as hard.


For years America has strove to compete in and win, as a capitalistic country.

As a result, there has been the overall hierarchy structure that was created to ensure efficiency and consistency with all products and services as America continues to compete with operations and successes of other countries and nations.

Beginning in the late 60’s, other organizational cultures began to rise that gave birth to the various products and services that we know today (Cameron & Quinn, 2011). However, how does the leaders of corporate America withstand having to face control and reprimand from the President- elect of the United States when many have only had to answer to board members and customers?

General Motors, Carrier, and Boeing are now faced with such dilemmas as they must now strategize to ensure their corporations align with the satisfaction of the U.S. government.  Not something many are used to navigating through, however today they face a new reality.

It’s difficult to determine just how much cooperation’s will measure up to competing markets and countries moving forward, but one thing is for sure, the United States and corporate America are both now up for a new way of life and doing business. CEO’s must now face how they run their organizations and possibly take lashings on a stage in front of the President and world to see.
