The Age of Accountability: Hillary Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, And Social Media

Updated: Feb 22, 2022

We are seeing a huge shift in power transfer that is moving from corporations, governments, and leaders to people and that shift is mainly because of the power of social media. No longer can leaders hide behind brick walls and pretend that their corporations are sanctuaries of wellness and honor without the right tools of communication and accountability.

Over the past few weeks, we have seen Hilary being offered up as a sacrificial lamb to the political gods because of the DNC’s failure to be previously accountable to the public. In the same vein, we have also seen Harvey Weinstein cut down from the Hollywood heavens and dragged in front of his numerous accusers. A shakedown is happening and we are seeing incredible upheavals in government, business and culture.

This shift and change are largely a result of social media and its ability to give power to the consumer. With great advances in monitoring, spying and another high tech tools, CEOs and political leaders must ensure that their organizations have the proper tools in place to ensure the safety and protection of its employers, customers, and citizens. When companies become vulnerable and allow for transparency within an organization then true innovation can be born. While this may take time to achieve an organization, when it does, the transformation can be incredible.

Companies or organizations that change because of political expediency or with the false motive to accept the deceptive new rules of social media will be the ones who lose in the long run. Customers and employers no longer will work for organizations who do not value who they are and don’t understand their core values. The true value proposition of the coming years will be corporations who open their minds to these new rules of accountability.
