I think that as in Communist China, the HR Department of western organizations is tasked with ensuring 'right think', and 'right behavior'. These behaviors and mindsets have very little to do with business needs and, therefore, can be rightly assessed as a form of corporate religion, or state-sponsored and corporately driven
Additionally, when employees join a corporation, they can be assured that they will be subjected to quite powerful psychological regimes, and w/o their consent. No one questions this or has ever questioned this, as far as I can see. Behavioral modification is flown under the radar via programs tagged as performance management, leadership development, or diversity. You may be right about an MMPI agenda related to 'training' programs.
One might imagine that assessment instruments are being used to identify potential 'leaders', and that would be right, but a potential leader is also a potential dissident, and we can't have that.
With regard to Landmark, the coaching program at my graduate university was infiltrated by Landmark graduates. One such instructor has created a history of the coaching field, which identifies the discipline as having emerged from the work of the Esalen Institute researchers/instructors, many of whom were operating on intelligence agency contracts. This is all denied, of course, and we are led to believe that group-therapy, group-dynamics training, humanistic and transpersonal psychology grew organically from the interaction of like-minded people in this idyllic location.
Coincidentally, and while I was investigating the LSD experiments that also took place at Esalen, I saw ancient footage of the LEC member mentioned above, a psychologist, participating in a Harvard-sponsored LSD trial. So much for 'organic'.
What did you say in an earlier post about the revision of history?
