Shoddy and unprofessional judgements on others.

Another unnecessary concept.

Inconvenient truths (research) show it's wrong-headed.
9. NLP
No Longer Plausible: training’s shameful, fraudulent cult?
Yet another mindless fad.
Inefficient, inhibiting and harmful fiction.
They're so last century!

Don't be a dick! - the rest is hubris. 
14. Piaget
Got nothing right and poor scientist.
Old theory, no longer relevant.
Not what it seems!

Creative with the truth.

Just to say thanks Donald. Wish I had some profound insight or commentary to add but truth be told, I simply enjoyed your top 7 very much. A suitable tonic to all the flotsam and jetsam that surrounds the world of HR&OD. Personally I'd add Intelligent Design but we'd be straying into different territory.....

Enjoy your Christmas.

No wonder L&D, let alone HR in general, does not get invited to the big decision-making table in business. We're more like fortune tellers than strategic business partners.
